The Faculty of Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb was launched in 1992 and obtained the status of a faculty on 10th December 2019. Research and teaching at the Faculty of Croatian Studies focuses on the interdisciplinary study of traditional and contemporary culture, identity, humanities and social issues related to the Republic of Croatia, the Croatian population and its diaspora. 

The topics include concepts of culture, politics, migration, intellectual history and reality, public and personal media communications, activities of social groups, human experience and behaviour, education and upbringing, language development, and relevant political, cultural, social and demographic issues of national, regional or European interest. 

University of Zagreb has signed an agreement with the Central State Office for Croats Abroad. It stipulates the college admittance quotas for Croats outside of Croatia with the aim of returning Croats and Croatian descendants to Croatia. Thus, the Faculty of Croatian Studies reserves a place for the enrolment of 53 students, each year, from the younger generations of Croats outside of Croatia, members of the Croatian diaspora and Croatian minorities. The costs of full-time study are fully subsidised from the State Budget.
