Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Hasanuddin University was officially established on August 17th, 1963 with the name Faculty of Maths and Natural Sciences which comprised four departments: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. In its development, the faculty added one department, Pharmacy, so that the faculty consisted of five departments. In 1977, Faculty of Maths and Natural Sciences and Faculty of Engineering were merged into one faculty with the name Faculty of Science and Technology. Six Years later, in 1983, the merged faculty was divided again into two different faculties; the science field became the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, while the technology field became the Faculty of Engineering again. Since the Pharmacy Department was upgraded into the Faculty of Pharmacy in 2005, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences comprised four departments as they were initially established.
After five decades, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has run the Master and Doctoral Programs, each of which is in the Departments of Chemistry and Mathematics. The Graduate Program in the Departments of Physics and Biology is still waiting for the approval from the General Director of the Higher Education. The alumni produced until December 2012 were approximately 6,000 graduates, 25 masters, 29 doctors.
To support learning processes and academic activities, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, provides offices for administrative and academic affairs, laboratories, library, parking areas, car parks, parks equipped with benches and free hotspot for students, seminar rooms, hall, quality assurance room, senate meeting room, canteen, and other facilities which could support the convenience of academic citizens.

The Eastern part of Indonesia is rich in marine waters because it consists of a cluster of islands storing a variety of marine resources and maritime high cultures. This condition has encouraged the marine and fishery sectors to play an important part in the economic development and welfare of the people in the eastern part of Indonesia.
On this basis, Hasanuddin University set up the development of Marine Sciences as Principal Scientific Pattern (PSP) in 1975 based on the Rector Decree No. 1149 / UP UH / on December 27, 1975. Before the PSP was formed, UNHAS had established the Department of Fishery under the Faculty of Agriculture in 1968. The establishment of Principal Scientific Pattern was based on the strategic analysis, geographical location, natural resources and potential of marine and social culture of the societies in the Eastern Part of Indonesia, where UNHAS was located in a province which was widely known as the maritime community. In 1988, UNHAS established the Marine Science Study Program as one of the responsibility implementations in education field for the development of marine science education. Similarly, the research and community service development by every field of science had been developed in UNHAS oriented to marine issues.
In 1996, The integration of the Marine Science and Fishery Departments into the Faculty of Marine Sciences and Fisheries was implemented based on Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture No. 036/0/1996 on January 29, 1996. Faculty of Marine Sciences and Fisheries became the twelfth established faculty within the university.
The development of Principal Scientific Pattern on marine began with the development of educational programs, research, and community service, and institution. The development of marine education program was in reference to arrangement of program and curriculum, establishment of institutional study programs as well as integration of Fishery Department into the Faculty of Marine Sciences and Fisheries (FMSF). The FMSF has planned the opening of study programs in Marine Technology and Marine Education at Master level of Hasanuddin University.
The concern of marine issues is not only limited on educational programs, but also to the development of research and community service. Until now, the faculty has produced numerous research publications as well as performed community service about marine issues. An attempt to prepare UNHAS as a leading research university has been made with the establishment of Research Centre building equipped with a laboratory. In addition, students’ activity centre, such as Aquarium Units, Coral Centre, Marine Station, and Seaweed Consortium are also available. These are provided to ensure the sustainable development of various fields of science and technology, especially the development of PSP of marine at UNHAS.

Faculty of Agriculture was established on the same day as the 17th Anniversary of theIndependence of the Republic of Indonesia on August 17th, 1962 as the seventh faculty of Hasanuddin University. It was officiated by the Minister of Education and Science, Professor Dr. Ir. Toyib Hadiwijaya. In the first year, the faculty accepted 75 students for the Department of Agricultural Engineering, and in the academic year of 1963, the Department of Forestry was opened. In 1964 – 1965 academic year, the faculty consisted of three departments: Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural Business, and Agriculture and Forestry Extension Departments. The first batch students (1967) accomplished their studies through the affiliation process with the Faculty of Agriculture of Bogor Agriculture Institute (1972). The faculty produced the first graduate, Engelbert O.M, in 1969, and in the same academic year, the Fishery Department was officially opened. In the period of 1972 – 1983, Faculty of Agriculture was changed into the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences comprising agriculture, forestry, animal sciences, and fishery. Then in 1983 – 1987, the name of faculty was again changed into Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry. Thus, the Faculty of Agriculture, Hasanuddin University had undergone several name changes and organisational structures from the pyramid structure into the matrix organizational structure in 1977. Since Hasanuddin University had simplfied the number and types of faculties, the Faculty of Agriculture and Faculty of Animalo Sciences were merged into one faculty called the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences.
The new era of the development of Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, started since the implementation of Government Regulation No. 5 of 1980 concerning the Organizational Principals of the State Universities/ Institutes and Presidential Decree No. 68 of 1982 concerning the Organizational Structure of Hasanuddin University. The Government issued the Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of Republic of Indonesia No. 0154/O/1983 as the implementation of the Government Regulation N. 5 of 1980 concerning the Organization and Work System of Hasanuddin University. The Minister’s Decree regulated the change of the name of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences into two faculties namely Faculty of Agriculture and Faculty of Animal Sciences. The departments and study programs also underwent changes in line with the Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of Republic of Indonesia No. 0563/O/1980 and the Decree of the General Director of Higher Education No. 108/DIKTI/Kep/1984. In 1993, in line with its development, Faculty of Agriculture underwent the name change into Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry based on with the Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of Republic of Indonesia No. 0134/O/93 February 27th, 1993.
