The history of the department begins in the mid-twentieth century, when a general social sciences department was created at the UNFU which has gone the way of great transformations.

 In November 1990, based on the Department of Political History of the 20th century, the Department of History of Ukraine was established.

 In 2005, the Department was renamed the Department of History of Ukraine, Political Science and Law. It provides the teaching of humanities in all the educational-research institutes of the university and provides a high level of knowledge, historical and political science thinking and legal training of students. In the structure of the Department, there are three sections - historical, political science and legal.

The teachers of the Department take an active part in the organization and running  of the university-wide events: solemn academies, flash mobs, quests, round tables dedicated to significant events and prominent figures of Ukraine.
