Faculty of Cultural Study (FIB), a young faculty in University of Brawijaya, has been approved by the Rector of University of Brawijaya by Decree No: 0279A/SK/2009. This faculty establishment is a response to a recommendation to balance Indonesian society development with progression of culture, language, and literature.

Faculty of Cultural Study (FIB) was pioneered through the establishment of Language Laboratory in 1973. That Language Laboratory served as a means of English educational facilities to prepare the lecturers of Universitas Brawijaya for getting ready to continue their studies abroad. With the Rector’s Decree No. 026/SK/1986, the Language Laboratory was changed into a program of 1 year Diploma study in English. The Language Laboratory was then futher developed into UPT Bahasa Inggris (Unit of Technical Service in English) in 1993 (Rector’s Decree No. 036 / SK / 1993).

Through the Rector’s Decree No. 188/SK/2006 Language and Literature Program was established. This Program embodied all Language and Literature study programs that had been formed previously.
