Liberal Arts programs were widely distributed in universities and colleges in the US in the second half of the twentieth century and became the main factor for the emergence of American higher education in the leading positions in the world. Currently, there is an active dissemination of Liberal Arts programs in European countries.

The fundamental difference between Liberal Arts and traditional university programs is the possibility of combining two specialization profiles: major and minor from the list offered by the Faculty. The possibility of such a choice is reflected in the Russian-language title of the program - Multidisciplinary Bachelor degree. At the same time, the choice of profile is not made at the time of admission to the university, but after studying the general block of disciplines.

This structure of the program allows the student to form a truly individualized training program, which provides the graduate with a unique set of competences.

The scientific supervisor of the program is Professor of the University of Oxford (UK), Academic Program Director of the Faculty of Public Administration of the Russian Academy of Sciences, member of the editorial board of the journals "New Literary Review", "Slavic Review" (USA), "Cahiers de Monde Russe" (France) Andrei Zorin.
