The University’s instruction and research are conducted within ten faculties, twenty-five departments and five units with the institute status. The development of academic specializations is also fostered by the Research Centres (Nanotechnology Centre, Biotechnology Centre, Centre for Eastern Studies, and Centre for Environmental Protection).
Apart from individual research, the MCSU faculty cooperate directly with academic, economic and administrative entities at home and abroad. The University fosters research by supporting participation in large-scale, specialized interdisciplinary research projects, research grants as well as by maintaining a system of internal university grants. MCSU participates in international programmes and organizes conferences and symposia, thus enabling specialists in various fields to actively exchange views and information. The results of a range of research activities are also published as monographs, handbooks, dictionaries and encyclopedias, conference proceedings, professional guides, and nationally and internationally recognized textbooks.
