Department history

The department was founded in 1990 at the Faculty of Physical Culture and Sports as the Department of Anatomy and Physiology. 5 teachers and  2 laboratory assistants worked at the department. In 1994, the opening of the specialty 03.03.40- «Teacher of biology at schoo» gave a new impetus to the development of the department. With the opening of the specialty 09.01.40 - «Ecology and nature management» in 1997  the Department of Anatomy and Physiology by order of the rector of the University was renamed the Department of Natural Science. A well-known scientist, teacher, doctor of medical sciences, professor Smail Nusip Nautaevich was appointed the head of the department.

In 2003, by the decision of the Academic Council of I.Zhansugurov Zhetysu University, the Department of Natural Science was reorganized into two departments: Biology, Chemistry and Ecology. The head of the Department of Chemistry and Ecology was appointed candidate of chemical sciences, associate professor Kenzhebekov A.  and the Department of Biology, candidate of biological sciences, associate professor Bakhtaulova A. Since 2006, the specialty «Geography» was joined to the Department of Biology and after that it was renamed to the Department of Biology and Geography.

In 2008, after the reorganization of the faculties at the new Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the following departments were created: Geography-Ecology and Chemistry-Biology. 2008-2010 the Department of Geography-Ecology was headed by Dyusebinova S., 2008-2009. Department of Chemistry-Biology, candidate of biological sciences, Akmullaeva A. 2009-2013 the Department of Chemistry-Biology was headed by candidate of pedagogical sciences, associate professor Koyanbekova S.

Since 2013, in connection with the formation of a new natural-technical faculty, the department of natural disciplines was created. In 2017, in connection with the reorganization, the Department of Chemistry and Biology was created. In 2019, in accordance with the direction of training teachers in natural science subjects, the department was renamed to the department of natural science. The department prepares specialties for educational programs: 6В01506-Chemistry, 6В01507-Chemistry-Biology, 6В01508-Biology, 6В01509-Geography, 6В01510-Geography-History, 7М01505-Biology, 7М01506-Geography, 8D01503-Biology. From 2013 to the present, the department is headed by candidate of biological sciences Oksikbaev B.K.
