A new major – «Youth outreach» was introduced at the Department of Cultural Studies and Sociology in 2006. Just three years prior to that, this qualification had been first introduced in Russia.
In addition to theoretical knowledge, TUSUR offers wide practical experience. Students become familiar with operation of audiovisual and multimedia equipment, which will certainly be of use to the future producers, managers in social and cultural spheres, and public officials.
