About the Institute
The Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Moscow International University is an educational institution of a fundamentally new format. It is based on not only lectures and courses bringing a student closer to mastering a particular profession or discipline; it creates a landscape where heterogeneous knowledge builds an integral worldview. To build this worldview, you need to collect it as a puzzle. It is collected from various fields of human sciences.
Only reading many books is insufficient for a person to develop cultural language, be it a tutor, a professor, a researcher, or an artist. He must learn to think and feel differently. We realized that only the energy of certain people – those who are at the peak of the ideas of their generation – could reconfigure one’s perception and lead him to the territories of completely new knowledge.
The best authors and researchers working in the field of humanitarian thought teach in our master’s program. They are Valery Podoroga, Oleg Aronson and Elena Petrovskaya in philosophy, Vladimir Malyavin in cultural studies, Ivan Chechot, Boris Klyushnikov and Gleb Napreenko in art studies, Kirill Kobrin in history, Mikhail Strakhov in psychoanalysis, Vladimir Martynov in art; Arthur Aristakisyan, Yuri Muravitsky, Anatoly Vasilyev, Alexander Brodsky and others.
We find the opportunity to get in touch with the literary, cinematographic, and cultural Petersburg text, which surprisingly coincides with the physical space of the city, of particular importance. Traveling sessions to St. Petersburg and special programs from Petersburg researchers are the most important part of our program.
We are always looking for new opportunities of joint educational programs, so the conclusion of strong partnership agreements throughout the world is one of our primary tasks.
