The author focuses on the matter of reason of teaching humanities in higher education establishments. The goal of teaching the human sciences is often being esteemed simply to expand the students’ worldview. But in fact, it also plays an important role in the process of forming professional qualities. The research pursued based on dialectical and systemic approaches.
The main results of the study appear to the idea that humanitarian subjects in higher education establishments fulfill three extremely important functions: first, they provide the basis for a holistic perception of knowledge and their deep understanding; secondly, they develop the student’s creative abilities; thirdly, they develop his personal qualities.
The newness and significance of the results lies in the conclusion that, without creative and personal characteristics, not a single person, even despite preparedness in the professional field can be a full-featured specialist. They form the basis of the professional qualities of any specialist, and only in terms of them, a person becomes a professional. Otherwise, he becomes one-sided and one-dimensional, because of which his purely professional skills become flawed. Moreover, in this regard, the value of humanitarian subjects is more significant than even professional training. This shows their proximate practical usefulness.
