The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Oulu is the northernmost of its kind in Finland, providing teaching and research in practically all the academic disciplines concerned with achievements in the humanities: history, language and linguistics, cultural studies and literature. The Faculty offers a wide variety of teaching and possesses a definite character of its own, two subjects having the only professorial chair in Finland, namely the History of Science and Ideas, and Saami (Lappish) Language and Saami Culture. The Faculty of Humanities is responsible for the education of Saami language teachers in Finland. This is organized in the Giellagas Institute.
