The Metaprogramme “Skills4Future” is a campus-wide project initiated for bachelor students of all degree programs focused on acquiring 4 soft skills – collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
Each student benefits from the learning experience in one of the intellectual labs developed by leading professors of HSE – St Petersburg. Within the Intellectual Lab, guided by the Lab’s tutors, the students will work on a particular problem or case to work out the solutions. On top of the Lab’s activities, the metaprogramme includes a series of workshops focused on acquiring the 4 skills, and guest lectures.
The Intellectual Lab “Youth in the City” is developed by the Centre for Youth Studies and is supervised by Prof. Elena Omelchenko. The lab will focus on the multiplicity and difference among contemporary youth and the relationship between youth and the city. Students will analyze the specifics of “youth scenes” (for example, youth musical scene or anime community) and create research projects on contemporary youth scenes of Saint Petersburg.
