Modern University for the Humanities

General Information

Modern University for the Humanities (MUH) was established in 1992. This higher educational institution in Moscow, Russia offers primarily distance-based undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate studies and vocational education. In 2017, it was 25 years since the founding of the Modern University for the Humanities. This is a short term for the university

But in summing up the results achieved, it was clear that the University had already created its history: by launching an extensive network of distance learning in Russia, having developed and successfully introduced innovative didactics and intelligent robots into the educational process, after graduating more than 300,000 graduates. There is therefore a need to establish a museum of its own. Considering that MUH (Modern University for the Humanities)  is an innovator of distance education in Russia and that more than 80% of graduates and staff of the Academy live outside Moscow, we decided to create a museum accessible to all – virtual. 

The purpose of the creation of the Virtual Museum is to preserve the history of the University, the memory of the complex path of the pioneers, the years of search, mistakes, and discoveries. Our task is to make the University proud of its graduates, employees, and partners, and to make Russia proud of it.
