One of its faculties was the Faculty of Social Sciences Teacher Training (FKIS) which was inaugurated by the PTIP Minister on May 21, 1964. This decision was strengthened by Decree RI President Number 268 of 1965, September 14, 1965. In order to strengthen the function of teacher training in the field of Social Sciences, IKIP Yogyakarta rector issued Decree Number 05 of 1965 which contained the change of name of the FKPS to become the Faculty of Social Sciences Teaching (FKIS).
