General Information

Sakhalin State Uni­ver­sity com­prises 6 Insti­tutes (Insti­tute for Eco­nom­ics and Ori­en­tal Stud­ies, Insti­tute of Philol­ogy, Insti­tute of Ped­a­gog­ics, Insti­tute of Law, Insti­tute for Man­age­ment and Social Stud­ies, and Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy), 6 Fac­ul­ties (Physics, Math and Com­puter Sci­ence Fac­ulty, Nat­ural Sci­ence Fac­ulty, Nat­ural Resources, Oil and Gas Engi­neer­ing, Ser­vice and Tourism Fac­ulty and Prepara­tory Fac­ulty), Col­leges (Yuzh­no-Sakhalinsk Teacher Train­ing Col­lege, Alexan­drovsk-Sakhalin­sky Col­lege, Sakhalin The­atre Col­lege). The Uni­ver­sity has 9 edu­ca­tional build­ings and 3 hos­tels with more than 1000 students.

Over 7000 stu­dents study at the Uni­ver­sity, includ­ing over 1000 ful­l-­time and about 400 part-­time stu­dents enrolled in 2009. We have 41 edu­ca­tional pro­grams for spe­cial­ists and bach­e­lors, 4 mas­ter pro­grams, 16 post-­grad­u­ate pro­grams, and 30 sec­ondary voca­tional edu­ca­tion courses.

A great work has been done over the last 5 years to open new areas of study for train­ing spe­cial­ists and bach­e­lors. Licenses have been obtained and per­son­nel train­ing pro­grams have been started in such areas as: Law Finance and Cred­its, Logo­pe­dics, Jour­nal­ism, Ecol­ogy, Biol­ogy, Geog­ra­phy, Com­puter Infor­ma­tion Sci­ence, Envi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment, Social Sci­ence, Ped­a­gog­ics and Psychology.

Region’s remote­ness causes the lack of higher edu­ca­tion pro­grams avail­able, but the Uni­ver­sity does its best to offer a greater num­ber of edu­ca­tional pro­grams in order to pro­vide cit­i­zens with the best edu­ca­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties. Over the past few years, the Uni­ver­sity has started to offer new courses in Applied Math­e­mat­ics, Com­puter Sci­ence, Sus­tain­able Man­age­ment of Nat­ural Resources, Oil and Gas Engi­neer­ing, Man­age­ment, Trans­la­tion and Trans­la­tion Study, Lin­guis­tics, Ecol­ogy, Jour­nal­ism, Aquatic Bio-Re­sources and Aqua­cul­ture and so on.

Sakhalin State Uni­ver­sity is imple­ment­ing sev­eral sec­ond uni­ver­sity degree pro­grams, pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment pro­grams and exter­nal stud­ies pro­grams. All that cre­ates favor­able con­di­tions for the Life­long Learning.

Sakhalin Region devel­op­ment con­cept reflects the region’s role of link­ing the Far East to the main­land and to the Asian-­Pa­cific coun­tries. Region’s econ­omy shows sta­ble growth and invest­ment activ­ity per­for­mance, set­ting the higher edu­ca­tion sys­tem new objec­tives and goals, namely ren­der­ing infor­ma­tion, tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tional sup­port, estab­lish­ing joint edu­ca­tional sci­en­tific and indus­trial cen­ters involv­ing for­eign uni­ver­si­ties and com­pa­nies, and also prompt deci­sion-­mak­ing con­cern­ing per­son­nel train­ing issues. That is our mis­sion, and we face the future confidently.
