The main purpose of this report is to present the results of a survey conducted among students and PhD students on the application of 3D technologies in the preservation of cultural and historical heritage (CNN) and the application in the humanities. In the report we will present the methodology of the surveys for research of the attitudes for application of the new 3D technologies in the education in the humanitarian specialties.

The study was conducted in four nesting universities and covers 4 settlements, namely:
• University of Library Studies and Information Technologies;
• University of Veliko Tarnovo "St. St. Cyril and Methodius";
• South -West University "Neofit Rilski";
• University of Shumen "Bishop Konstantin Preslavski".

The nesting universities are selected on the principle of 50 percent stratification by the higher schools in Bulgaria, accredited to carry out training in the professional field 3.5 "Public Communications and Information Sciences".

According to data from the Ministry of Education, the total number of students studying specialties related to CNN is about 2,100. The number of respondents is 451.

The time scope of the survey is in two stages: May 1, 2019 - June 30, 2019 and October 1 - March 30, 2020. After surveying all individuals in the designated nests, the survey materials are subjected to logical inspection and control, after which the data were entered into a data matrix and subsequently processed with the statistical package SPSS for Windows 22.0.

The main conclusions of the survey are that all respondents, of course, to varying degrees, are informed about the application of 3D technology in the humanities. But the level of their awareness is extremely unsatisfactory, given the sectors of their future realization. This understanding would be a very strong motive for the inclusion of a discipline dealing with issues related to the application of 3D technologies in the humanities.
