MSUPE celebrates the 20th anniversary





The history of MSUPE goes back to the beginning of the 20th century, when the first research and educational psychological institute was founded in Russia (at that time, the third in the world), today it is the Psychological Institute of the Russian Academy of Education. At that time the founder of the Psychological Institute Georgy Chelpanov formulated the idea of ​​integrating academic science and university education. It formed the basis for creating in 1997 the first International Educational and Psychological College in the structure of PI RAO, and then – the Moscow City Institute of Psychology & Education that developed to Moscow State University of Psychology & Education that we know nowdays.
