Since the establishment of the University and the opening of the faculties for natural and exact sciences, the Department of Foreign Languages ​​established in each faculty and launched to carry out its function. Afterwards, as a result of the establishment of a number of faculties in the field of social sciences, as well, the number of foreign language departments increased and in order to optimize the structure of the university, there was established a language center which included the departments such as the Department of Foreign Languages for Natural Sciences, the Department of Foreign Languages for Exact Sciences, the Department of Foreign Languages for Business and Law, the Department of Foreign Languages for Social and Humanitarian Sciences, and these four departments were the part of the Language Center and the center was headed by Isakova Ravshana Karimdjanovna from 1999 to 2009.

     By 2009 the Language Center had ceased its function and there were established two departments – the Department of Foreign Languages for Natural Sciences and the Department of Foreign Languages for Social and Humanitarian Sciences, and these two departments became the part of the faculty of Foreign Philology. The Department of Foreign Languages for Natural Sciences was headed by Associate Professor Kasimova Mavluda Halimovna (later in 2013-2014 academic year by Mazlitdinova Dilnoza Tuygunovna) and the Department of Foreign Languages ​​for Social and Humanitarian Sciences was heade by Associate Professor Shirinova Raima Khakimovna.
