The tradition of education in the field of political science was set up in Russia in 1755, when the department of political science was founded by M.V. Lomonosov together with the first ten departments of Moscow University. In the early nineteenth century there was a faculty of ethical and political sciences at Moscow University which trained students in various areas: political science, diplomacy, political economy etc.
