The inauguration of Melli University of Iran on the heights of Tehran took place with just 174 students. Primarily, this university had only two faculties of economy and architecture. In 1982 it was renamed as Shahid Beheshti university. In 1990 first courses offering doctorate degree in economy were opened. The university currently offers more than 70 master degrees and 30 doctorate degrees. Medicine, literature and foreign languages, science and technology, law, and geology are some of new faculties that have been added.
