We participate in public discussions and debates; we present to the society our evidence-based scientific insights which are relevant to issues in public discourse. It is important for us that research conducted and social innovations created in the Faculty would contribute to the well-being of our country and the world, because we care about the future.

About the Faculty





Our vision

an open, inclusive, interdisciplinary and creative academic community that addresses the challenges of the future and enables the sustainable development of society and the state through the synergy of research, art and technology.

Our mission

to contribute to the sustainable development of society and the state through creation and transfer of interdisciplinary research-based knowledge, and development of creative, responsible, critical thinkers capable of experimenting, embracing the challenges of change, and upholding humanistic values.

Our goal is to prepare graduates, citizens of Lithuania and the world, for national and international careers. Faculty’s priority is social partnership and internationalism. Collaboration with private and public organisations, local communities, Alumni give practical knowledge, abilities, and skills which match the market needs; it motivates to create joint projects, to propose innovative solutions, and organise practical activities. The experience of studying and training in universities or organisations abroad along with participation of international scientists and experts in the study process is a necessary requirement for success to ensure the quality of studies.

We aim to build an internationally acclaimed community of teachers and researchers to guarantee quality of the studies. We encourage teachers and researchers to keep improving, to develop professionally, to conduct research and projects, to combine theory with newest practical experience, and to join national and international networks of experts. We want our teachers to be leaders of change who look for non-traditional, creative solutions, and motivate their students to think critically and to analyse the environment.

A massive two and a half storey building at the corner of K. Donelaičio str. and A. Mickevičiaus str. catches the eye – it is known historically as the First Chamber of the University of Lithuania.

On February 16, 1922 University of Lithuania was established in Kaunas on the basis of Higher Courses.

On March 24, 1922 Constituent Assembly of Lithuania confirmed the Statute of the University of Lithuania and since that year the building was the main and only Chamber of the University for five years (until 1927).

In 1927 it was renamed as the First Chamber. Rector’s Office, the Faculty of Law, and classrooms of Faculties of Mathematics and Natural Sciences were located here. The building has a Great Hall of the University (Aula) where University’s and Senate’s celebratory meetings still take place.

One can literally feel the spirit of science and culture at KTU Faculty of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, as from the very beginning it was the most important centre of Lithuanian intellectual and cultural life. Zigmas Žemaitis, Jonas Gudaitis-Vabalas, Petras Leonas, Petras Šalčius, Vladas Jurgutis, Augustinas Janulaitis, Teodoras Daukantas and other society‘s intellectuals created, worked, and taught here.


Dean's office



Have you ever wondered what university is all about?

For me, first and foremost, it is about people. People with their diverse experiences and perspectives. Without them, beautiful auditoriums, the newest computer equipment or state-of-the-art labs would be just tools without purpose. As a Dean, every day I think about how to attract people with impressive academic and life skills, and how to keep them here. In this publication, you will meet a few members of our faculty, whose life treasure chests hide all sorts of curiosities. I believe that through their experience you will get to know our faculty and the study programmes offered here. Read on!
