Every year, at the conference being organized by the Institute of Media, Social Sciences and Humanities, Sociology students of all years of study present the findings of their scientific work over the past year and share the results of their theoretical and empirical research.
In the course of the conference, students and teaching staff members have considered such topics as: problems of the Russian economy and entrepreneurship; technology of chat bots as an aspect of everyday life; issues of the social policy and volunteering; occupational socialization and adaptation; and many others.
