Institute of Philology and Mass Communication

About Us

Our staff is a passionate group of people who are enthusiastic about teaching and inspiring students toward high achievements, so that they may aspire to the highest ideals and realize their maximum potential.

Our mission is to inculcate the love of the word in students, as this is the meaning of the Greek philologia. Since learning another language is a key to cognition, those who can master another language gain true freedom. Thus, our daily task consists in reminding our students that learning another language is like building an imaginary city, and each person brings their own bricks and stones with them.

Dear students – future philologists, interpreters, applied linguists, advertising experts, and journalists! May you build a beautiful, stylish, and spacious city of dreams so that guests, upon leaving, may say: “What a place!”

“Over the course of time, having gained a certain level of experience, I would like to say the following: nothing is better than when our graduates achieve their dreams and become successful while staying decent and kind people. It is well that our graduates seek ways to become wealthy, but he who uses tricks and dirty business is worthless. It is better to stay honest than to lose one’s reputation”.
