Reforms in Doctral





Course Plan

Programme organizers and members of Curriculum Working Groups in sociology and cultural studies consider it more reasonable to focus attention on the development of general courses in sociology and cultural studies at the present phase of M.A. programme implementation. Such an approach will strengthen the interdisciplinary character of the programmes from the start, and will allow more students to apply to them. Once the first phase of programme implementation is successfully completed, the separate fields of sociology and cultural studies will be developed. In this phase, more attention will be paid to optional courses, which will reduce the proportion of general courses.
