Faculty of Arts and Humanities
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Tartu is the largest, most diverse and most internationally recognised centre for research in the Humanities in Estonia.
The Faculty has a special responsibility in both upholding and developing national sciences as well as passing on knowledge about world's languages and cultures. Our highly educated staff and alumni participate in the professional academic discussion in the field of humanities and arts but also contribute to the wider debates over norms, values and ethics in society.
