Bashkir State Pedagogical University named after M. Akmulla

Bashkir State Pedagogical University named after M. Akmulla (M. Akmulla BGPU) (Bashk. M. Aҡmulla and Hemeng Bashҡort will teach the university (M. Aҡmulla and BDPU)) is a State educational institution of higher vocational education under federal authority. Today there are 5 institutes, 7 faculties, 43 departments in the Bashkir M. Akmulla State Pedagogical University.


The university has trained more than 40,000 specialists. It is one of the 20 best teacher training colleges in the country.


The Mihtaheddin Akmulla BHP was established in Ufa on 9 January 1967 as an institute. The first teacher’s institute in the republic was established in 1909. From 1919 it was transformed into the Institute of National Education, which consisted of four faculties: social-historical, bio-geographical, physical-mathematical and literary-linguistic. This higher education institution trained teachers of schools and technical colleges.


Since 1923 the institute has received the name «Practical» and began to further train specialists of agriculture. In 1929 the Bashkir State Pedagogical Institute was established on its base. Timiryazeva was transformed in 1957 into the Bashkir State University. However, the need to develop higher pedagogical education and to train teachers with high qualifications was high. By that time, less than a third of the country’s teachers had received higher education. Training in many specialties was not provided at all. The newly established Bashkir State Pedagogical Institute successfully carried out this task.


Already in 1976, it was recognized as a first-class university. In 2000, the Bashgospedagogical Institute was renamed the Bashkir State Pedagogical University, and in 2006 it was given the name M. Akmulla.
