Faculties are the university centres that promote students’all-round education and professional training. They also promote the advancement of knowledge in their respective fields and coordinate the activities required to obtain academic degrees in all cycles of each degree programme.

The University started teaching law and philosophy in 1886. Later, in 1916, Business Studies were first delivered at the so-called 'Commercial' Faculty at Deusto. It was in the 1960s that the first Faculties were formed, which have evolved into the current structure around the areas of Business, Law, Education and Sport, Theology, Social and Human Sciences, Engineering and Health Sciences.
