Chair of journalism
The Chair of Journalism is one of the youngest departments of the university. As a separate unit it appeared in 2011.

The chair sets the goal to build a modern school of journalism in Yugra focused on technologies.
One of the chair's major targets is bringing the programme of journalists training up to date with the rapidly changing technological reality. In particular, we organize local events for student journalists. The chair prepares graduates for the qualification in  Journalism and is aimed at creating individual students' career paths considering the needs of local employers.

Here is the report on the progress of the chair over 2013/14 academic year (by Ilya Stechkin*).
