History


Research activity in education was a vital idea from the very beginning of the university’s establishment and its further strategic development. For this purpose, in 1992 Khazar University started a partnership program with the University of California Los Angeles in the field of University Management. Within the framework of this partnership program the Center for Education and Information Studies was established at Khazar University. Later on, another center related to Education – the Center for Academic Quality Assurance – was created with the support of the European Commission.

Moreover, Khazar University faculty members have been involved in teacher training programs in various regions of Azerbaijan, including in refugee camps. Accordingly, the Center for Economic and Business Research and Education was established. This Center particularly dealt with conducting training in various fields of Economics and Business for secondary school teachers and entrepreneurs in Baku and regions of Azerbaijan.

In 2003, an undergraduate degree program in Elementary Education started to be offered. The importance of nourishing the younger generation of teachers has been prioritized by the University since its foundation.

Since 2009, The School of Education has offered new bachelor degree programs such as Azerbaijani Literature and Language Education, Mathematics and Computer Education, Chemistry and Biology Education, and History and Geography Education.
