The aim of the study was to experimentally test the effectiveness of didactic conditions for the development of students’ research competence in the study of the humanities. Several complementary methods were used in the experimental study: a comprehensive test to assess the levels of research competence (S.A. Mishyn); Zamfir’s Motivation of Professional Activity modified by A.N. Rean; adapted Starkey’s Critical Thinking test; Simonov’s Education Level technique, author’s questionnaire with open-ended questions to determine the importance of research competence for students in the course of their professional education. The results of the pedagogical experiment revealed the effectiveness of the introduction of innovative forms of theoretical training (lectures and seminars) for the development of research competence in future specialists in the humanities classes. The research found the main directions of innovative experience of improving lectures, seminars as a form of education for the development of students’ research competence. The research showed that it is possible to develop research competence in the process of teaching humanities depending on the types of training (theoretical, practical). It is important to organize the students’ cognitive activity in the course of theoretical training, while it is necessary to apply the problem method of teaching in the practical classes. We consider the study of the problem of continuity in the development of the research culture of the individual under the conditions of continuing education as a prospect for further research.
