Programme presentation. Nowadays the profession of a journalist is one of the most demanded. This is largely due to the rapid development of the media sphere and web-technologies. The profession of a journalist is not only prestigious and highly paid, but also extremely exciting. To be a journalist means to be always aware of breaking news, to meet outstanding and interesting people every day and, what is most important, to influence the events of the region (and in the long run – beyond it) through active involvement in the formation of public opinion.

The Department actively cooperates with educational institutions with a view of establishing a single education area. Among the achievements of the staff there are victories in contests of grants of the Russian Scientific Foundation for the Humanities, the Governor of the District as well as in international contests of psychological and pedagogical projects for the adaptation of migrants in Russia.
