The department had laboratories on problems of higher education, ethnopedagogy and the history of pedagogy, as well as a methodological seminar on topical issues of pedagogy.


In 1992, on the basis of the Department of Pedagogy, the first specialized council in the republic was opened on 14.05.01 for awarding the degree of Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences in the specialty "13.00.01-Theory and History of Pedagogy", and then in ethnopedagogy.
