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, editing, the stages of the creative process, and the production cycle of creating a media product – simply put, everything that can be called journalism, media, and communications.

Within the framework of the Media Institute presentation master classes, Professor Maria Shteinman talked about storytelling, its history, and the universal formula that emerged thanks to the fantasy genre. Using the example of the "Lord of the Rings" script, the entrants understood what secondary worlds, escapism, and eucatastrophe are. Maria also explained why the modern media industry cannot be imagined without storytelling and how English journalism and fake news work in the Harry Potter universe. Afterwards, Alexander Kupriyanov, academic director of the Media Communications programme, answered the applicants' questions.
The Open Day visitors were not left without entertainment: there was a mobile studio in the Atrium, where everyone could try himself or herself as a TV presenter and read the news text using a prompter. Student volunteers told the students and their parents about studying at the Institute of Media as well as shared their personal experiences and advice.
We talked to graduates who are planning to enrol at the Institute of Media this year.
"I love the fact that media communication covers so many things. Even if you don't know what you're going to become yet, the university will guide you - through the variety of projects and the number of activities. I only recently discovered HSE and media communications, and I was immediately hooked. I wanted to go to VGIK to study production, but then I saw how many interesting things there are here».
"I dream of going to HSE because the teachers and knowledge here are very up-to-date. My sister went to graduate school at HSE, and she praises it a lot. So I am very determined to enter here. The requirements are high, but I try to study a lot. I really enjoy the open day because there are so many workshops and merchandise available, and I even won a mug! Everyone is friendly and helpful".
