SAS distinctive feature is the organization of research around multidisciplinary projects involving social sciences, life sciences, humanities and IT. The incoming professors can either join the existing team projects https://sas.utmn.ru/en/research-en/ or form their own new projects with incoming faculty from other disciplines at the project design session in March 2019 (see info on the previous such session here: https://sas.utmn.ru/en/project-design-session-2018-en/).
SAS faculty teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels. SAS undergraduate program is similar to a US university’s honors college and is characterized by small classes, extensive core curriculum, and a large number of elective courses designed by faculty based on their research interests. SAS offers majors in Film & Media, Sociology & Anthropology, Economics, History, IT, Life Sciences and Cultural Studies. On the graduate level, SAS has just launched its first MA program in Digital Cultures and Media Production https://sas.utmn.ru/en/ma-en/ with another MA program in social sciences scheduled to open in 2019. There will be other MA programs opening in the coming years whose fields and design will largely depend on faculty’s interests.
