Mogilev University Kuleshov
Mogilev Kuleshov University (MSU) has been working in Belarus for more than 100 years. At the very beginning of its journey, the university was an institution. However, such status did not prevent him from qualitatively preparing specialists for his native country. Teachers who worked before in an educational institution, have always been true professionals in their field. They tirelessly laid the foundations of the future. Today the Kogushov Mogilev State University is a regional research and education center that deserves separate consideration.
From the founding of the university to the beginning of the war
Mogilev State University (MSU) named after Kuleshov is a fairly prestigious university in the country. It is difficult to imagine that he was once a small educational institution with several dozens of students. And this is not fiction. The university began its educational activities in 1913 in the form of a teacher’s institute. The first set was small. There were just over 30 students.
In 1918, the institute was no longer a teacher’s, but a pedagogical one. This was the first step towards development. In the next 20 years, nothing large-scale with the university did not happen. It gradually developed and could further improve if the Great Patriotic War did not come in 1941. This terrible event crossed the long-term activities of the institute. The city was captured at the very beginning of the war by the Germans. The work of the university was terminated.
In June 1944, the Soviet army liberated Mogilev. About a month later, the pedagogical institute resumed its work. For those who wished, 2 forms of study (full-time and part-time), 3 faculties (language and literature, historical and geographical) were opened. So the university took the path of recovery and further development.
After the war, there were very few teachers in the pedagogical institute - only 16. However, they successfully coped with the training of students. Gradually the number of teachers increased, new faculties opened. Began to appear also specialties that are not related to teaching. The university engaged in training and for other spheres of public life.This led to the fact that in 1997 the school was renamed Mogilev State University.
Today, Kuleshov University continues to be a classical educational institution. The areas and specialties in which the university conducts training belong to various areas of modern life, but it is the pedagogical professions that are still in priority.
