The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of the most multidisciplinary faculties in the HSE. It is the product of uniting the faculties of sociology, applied political science, psychology and public administration, which are now schools, and a series of laboratories, research centers and institutes. This kind of synthesis of education and research in the sphere of social sciences is a standard part of global best practice for a modern research university.
We train researchers, analysts and practitioners of sociology, political science, psychology and management, and specialists in education, demographics, public policy and civil society. Our primary strategy in teaching bachelors, masters and doctorate courses is to prepare students to meet global demands and requirements as successful professionals.

The winners of the competition for the best project describing aspects of the country’s cultural, economic, social and educational history over the last 25 years have been announced.
When people talk about the history of today’s Russia, the country that appeared after the fall of the Soviet Union, they almost always talk about political history. Attempts to look at other aspects of Russian society are much less common. Our university is almost the same age as this new, post-Soviet, Russia, and that’s why in May 2017, HSE announced a competition to find a project that can describe the cultural, social, and educational aspects of Russian history over the last 25 years.
The competition committee had a hard time choosing the winner. Nevertheless, they made their choice, and here are the winners.
The first place went to a team whose core is drawn from the HSE Laboratory for Studies in Economic Sociology. Their project ‘The swinging pendulum of consumer demand: 25 years of post-Soviet consumption history’ received the most points, and was awarded a grant of 250,000 roubles.
The team working on the project entitled ’25 years of Russian education in Ten Stories’ headed by Boris Startsev, Columnist at HSE News Service and lead editor at the Vestnik Obrazovania journal published by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, took second place and was also awarded a grant of 250,000 roubles.
The third place and a 150,000-rouble grant went to a team of philology students. Their project ‘Best-selling books in the post-Soviet period’, aims to identify and describe the country’s most popular books, including fiction, children’s books, and non-fiction.
The application that took fourth place has also received a grant of 150,000 roubles. The project ‘Evolution of the wedding feast’ was proposed by a team led by Valery Gordin, Head of the Laboratory of Cultural Economics at the St.Petersburg School of Economics and Management.
Congratulations to all the winners! We are looking forward to seeing the results of the implemented projects, including those that will be published on our anti-versary website.
