The process of this faculty's foundation began in 1964. The Chair of Philosophy of YSU Faculty of History served as a basis to open the Department of Philosophy here. The first generation of graduates left the department in 1969.
Before 1970 the philosophy tutoring was implemented by the only Chair of Philosophy. In 1970 the Chair of Philosophy was divided into three different chairs, functioning up now.
In 1982 the Department was separated from the Faculty of History and a new Faculty of Philosophy and Sociology was founded. Before 1990 both the philosophers and sociologists used to apply together and from the 3rd Academic year to choose the specialization. After such preparation of required specialists in 1991 the section of Sociology was separated from the Philosophy section and became an independent department, and the department of Social work separated from this one in 1995 in its term.
In 1992 the Department of Psychology was opened at this faculty and it was renamed the Faculty of Philosophy, Sociology and Psychology. The Chair of Political Science was a part of this faculty till 1998, when it joined the newly formed Faculty of International Relations.
In 2004 the chairs of Sociology and Social Work also separated from this faculty and formed a new faculty. So, the faculty was renamed again-Faculty of Philosophy and Psychology.
Five chairs, the experimental psychology laboratory, scientific-research laboratories for experimental psychology and for personal and professional activities function in its structure, as well as Centre for Applied Psychology. One NAS RA Academician, 1 NAS RA associate member, 11 doctors of sciences and professors and 25 candidates of sciences and assistant professors are involved in the educational process of the faculty currently.
