History of the faculty
One of the first faculties, organized by the Kazakh Women’s Pedagogical Institute in 1944, was Faculty of Natural Sciences. Natural faculty is a fundamental faculty, which provides more than half a century our country’s school -educated teachers of chemistry, biology and geography. During this period of history the faculty were headed by following famous teachers: N.Bayandin, T.T.Taubaev, C.D.Duymagambetova, K.S.Sahibzadaev, R.G.Hamitov, G.B.Birmagambetov, M.G.Tartenova, A.U.Umbetalina, B.Yu.Yusupov, Zh.Zh.Kozhantaeva, B.M.Butin. Now the dean of the faculty is K.Kishibaev, a candidate of Chemistry Science. At various times, the faculty had well-known scientists of Kazakhstan National Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Biology, Professor T.N. Doszhanov, scientists that were famous not only among us but also abroad as National Academy of Sciences of Kazakhstan, L.K.Klyshev, academician M.K.Gilmanov. In the early years due to economic difficulties there was sharply reduced the number of students, then an association with physical and mathematical faculty created, and on August 2 with the Order №100 Department of Natural Sciences was renamed into the ” Natural Science and geography” faculty.
On October 5, 2011 with the 154 order, it was again renamed back to the Faculty of Natural Science. Initially, the faculty included such departments as: chemistry, the basis of safety of life, biology and geography. Due to the fact that the number of students increased from the Department of Biology, Department of Ecology stood out by itself.
