Time has always posed challenges for those who work in the media industry. Such a complex field has a great number of interrelated components – from social change to revolutionary advances in technology.
We suggest taking a look at social processes in a much broader way by studying journalism, media management, directing basics, film editing, the stages of the creative process, and the production cycle of creating a multimedia work – simply put, everything that can be called journalism, media, and communications.
The instructors and practitioners of the School of Media teach in programmes specializing in Journalism, Media Management, Multimedia Journalism, and Media Production in Creative Industries. We take a project-based approach to learning, offering our own contemporary production base that allows for the most diverse products to be created – from newspaper layouts to multimedia articles and TV shows.

Because in the “post-truth” era everyone can become a newsmaker, fake news has been an urgent problem. Social media allows the fast proliferation of fakes. Unfortunately, the audience and even media professionals often lacks media literacy to distinguish fake news from the truth. Professional media platforms may not only use unverified information from unreliable sources but also amplify its dissemination. This often results in inadequate media agenda and human rights violations.
Can we and should we fight fake news by legal means? How could we balance between the protection of the right to freedom of expression and other legitimate rights and freedoms as well as interests? Are content removals and website blocking admissible measures from the vision of the international legal standards? These and other issues will be considered at the lecture.
The lecture will be held in English without translation. It is conducted within the course titled, Entertainment Law, that is taught by Elena Sherstoboeva, an Associate Professor of Media Department.
