Research areas:

The members of the department are actively involved in research as well as in educational and methodological work. In 2006, the textbook “Historical Area Studies” (Part 1) was published. Here the history of area studies movement in Ukraine as well as trends in current regional study are shown. In 2011, the series of lectures “Historical Study. Trends and Methods of Historical Area Studies” was set up. The department regularly organizes local history conferences “Historical Relics of Halychyna”. During 2001-2010 five conferences were held, and the findings were published in the collections of scholarly papers.

During their internship, students specializing in “Historical Area Studies ” acquire the experience of being Lviv guides.

Lecturers’ articles are regularly published in local and professional journals. A number of methodological works were issued recently. Among them there is “A Syllabus of the Course “Historical Area Studies”, “A Syllabus of the Course “History of Ukraine” for University Students”, “Seminar Plans of the Course “History of Ukraine” for First-year Students”.
