Department of Biology and Chemistry

The Department of Botany was established on February 1, 1945. The founder is considered to be Prof. P. Snarskis, who was also the first head of the department (01-02-1945 – 01-10-1945). After that the department was headed by M. Juškaitienė (1945-1948) later by J. Rinkūnas (1948-1951). For 29 years the Department of Botany was headed by Prof. A. Janonis. He put in a lot of effort into the improvement of the material base, the designing of teaching plans and programmes and the development of pedagogues’ competencies. After that the department was headed by D. Smailiukas for 23 years. Since 2002 until the present day the head of the department has been Prof. R. Noreika. In 2012 the departments of Botany and Zoology were merged to form one Department of Biology and Natural Science Education.

Throughout the post-war period the lecturers of the Department of Botany were training biology teachers of various profiles. Among the specialities taught were Biology-Chemistry, Biology-Agriculture Foundations, Geography-Biology, and Biology-Physical Education. For extramural studies only the studies of Biology were offered.

One of traditional practice areas of the department lecturers is diverse cooperation with the biology teachers of Lithuania. The lecturers prepare collaborative conferences; read lectures in teacher qualification improvement courses; work in biology teachers’ qualification committees and young biologist Olympiads.

The department students undergo pedagogical internships with the best Lithuanian biology teachers. The Department of Botany is proud of its former students and now teachers-experts, teachers-supervisors, senior teachers and all the graduates that are working in pedagogical fields; the department is also proud of its former students and now well-known botanists, organisers of scientific and pedagogical work, well known public figures.

The department cooperates with the University of South Bohemia (Czech Republic), Daugavpils University (Latvia), Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences (Poland), Eskisehir Osmangazi University (Turkey), Süleyman Demirel University (Turkey) and Dokuz Eylül University (Turkey).
