By the end of the fifties in the Republic of Kazakhstan began to be felt an acute shortage of specialists in physical culture and sports with higher education: in rural areas, specialists were 12-14%, in cities 25-28%. With this in mind, in 1959 a physical education department was opened at the Karaganda Pedagogical Institute of the Faculty of Biology, which in 1964 grew into a faculty of physical education. The faculty in its development passed a number of stages related to the reorganization of the Karaganda Pedagogical Institute of Physical Education in Karaganda Pedagogical Institute, and then its merger with Karaganda State University named after E.A.Buketov.
The faculty can be proud of its achievements. Graduates replenished a number of physical education teachers, became coaches of sports, heads of sports organizations of different levels. Many glorious names the graduates of different years of the faculty have brought in the history of Kazakhstani sport.
