We live in a world that builds on science and need to understand critical relationships between humans and their environment, but do we really get the sense of the related issues that feature in the news? Whether you’re keen to study a specific area of science, or you’re not yet sure where your interests lie – say in physics, chemistry or biology – this program is for you.
The first semester is fully focused on Russian language training, building reading, writing, speaking and oral comprehension skills necessary for both academic understanding and everyday communication. As a key outcome, the students achieve the language level required to go on with specialty courses.
In the second semester, they go on mastering their language proficiency through the course of Russian for University Studies, and also develop advanced learning competences, including presentation and seminar participation strategies, time and materials management, meeting deadlines and responding feedback. The specialty part of the curriculum gives students foundation of knowledge in diverse areas of Chemistry, Biology, and Physics to be expanded in their further studies. Meanwhile, they learn the unique structure, style, process, and documentation required for Scientific Russian to help explain phenomena of the natural world.
Knowledge of many different areas of science can lead to a rewarding career in a wide range of different professions. Science graduates are well qualified to enter both scientific and non-scientific jobs. The logical, reasoned approach needed for science study is applicable to legal, business and public sector employment, so science graduates – particularly those who have good communication and interpersonal skills – are in demand. After successfully completing the program, students will become fully prepared to enter relevant bachelor programs of the Ural Federal University – which is a first step to professional advancement.
