The Liberal Arts in Russia: A Superfluous Luxury or a Justified Necessity?

Russian Education and Society. 2018. Vol. 60. No. 5. P. 392-401.
Bogolepova S. V., Malkova N.

The article analyzes the applicability of the liberal arts education model to Russian higher education. We describe the distinguishing traits of the model from the points of view of administrators and teachers. We focus on the challenges that the Russian system would face if individual features were thoughtlessly borrowed from this Western system without considering the local context.
