Institute of Teacher Education
The history of V.G. Belinsky Institute of Teacher Education dates back to 1 July 1939, when the Teacher Training Institute was established. In 1941, it was transformed into the Pedagogical Institute comprising three faculties (Physics and Mathematics; Russian Language and Literature; History). The gradual advancement of the institute was accompanied by founding new faculties (Natural Sciences – 1948; Physical Training – 1956; Further Teacher Education – 1961; Foreign Languages – 1964; Primary Education – 1977; Economics, Management and Computer Sciences – 1993; Law – 1994; Psychology and Social Sciences – 1994) and launching new study fields, e.g. journalism, biochemistry, ecology, speech and language therapy, special psychology, arts, music, and translation studies.
The well-established practices of training highly qualified specialists for the education system and significant research and academic potential of the institute led to its transformation into V.G. Belinsky Penza State Pedagogical University on 9 December 1994. The HEI housed 11 faculties (Physics and Mathematics; Russian Language and Literature; History; Natural and Geographic Sciences; Foreign Languages; Primary and Special Education; Physical Training; Economics, Management and Computer Sciences; Law; Psychology; Social Sciences and Social Work). Since October 2012, it is the unit of Penza State University.
Currently, V.G. Belinsky Institute of Teacher Education includes 3 faculties (History, Languages and Literature; Pedagogy, Psychology and Social Sciences; Physics, Mathematics and Natural Sciences) with 26 departments. In addition, the institute comprises the Centre for Further Teacher Education, Centre for Music Education, Pedagogical Philharmonia, I.I. Sprygin Botanical Garden, Biostation, Museum of Engaging Sciences, and Museum of Teacher Education History.
