 On May 18 1998 began the history of the tenth, youngest, faculty of art pedagogy. The candidate of pedagogical sciences, associate professor Mykola Levchenko was elected the dean, and he headed the only chair of artistic culture at that time. The creation and opening of such an art center has become a landmark event not only for Kherson region but for the South of Ukraine as a whole.


   In 2003, by the decision of the Academic Council of the University, the Faculty of arts pedagogy was renamed the Faculty of Culture and Arts. As the faculty grew, new chairs and branches were opened. Today our faculty represents five chairs, which teach more than five hundred students in four specialties.
