Science never was and never will be a completed book. Every important victory gives rise to new questions, and all sorts of development eventually faces new, even harder challenges. –A. Einstein.

Kaunas Faculty is the only faculty of Vilnius University located in another city, where it was established in 1964. Now it is quite hard to believe that, at the very “dawn” of the faculty’s life, it did not have its own premises and was renting classrooms in the Institute of Polytechnics. This fact determined the form of the studies. For many years, people have been referring to the faculty as the “evening” faculty. In the beginning, KnF was expected to focus on general studies in Humanities, while studies of special subjects would be continued in the extramural department. However, when in 1984 the faculty was moved to present premises, it became possible to diversify the studies. Two departments that were founded in the beginning, the Department of Philology and the Department of Public Economic Sciences, gradually transformed into a number of departments and encouraged the diversification of the study programmes. In 1989, a day-time department was established. From then on, the faculty has been called Kaunas Faculty of Humanities.
