TOMSK, Aug 12 – RIA Tomsk. Documents reception to Tomsk State University (TSU) magistracy ends on Monday, entrance examinations end on August 15, and on August 20 will be enrollment to state-funded places. Jurisprudence remains the most sought-after area, but interdisciplinary master's programs are becoming more popular, the head of TSU new recruitment department Evgeny Pavlov reported RIA Tomsk.
"Today (on August 12), we are finishing accepting documents for the magistracy of Tomsk State University. At the moment more than 2.5 thousand applications for 1000 places of master's degrees programs have been received, which is 10% more than last year. The last entrance examinations will be held on August 15, on August 20 there will be crediting to state-funded places, and to paid ones - by the 30th", - Pavlov said.
This year master's degrees programs are open in 55 areas of training and includes more than 110 educational programs. The most popular - is jurisprudence: 12 people claim one place. However, autonomous master's programs (AMP) are becoming increasingly popular: 43 applications were accepted for 20 places in the "Big Data Mining" program, 30 applications for 10 places in the "Eurasian Integration" program.

"Autonomous - that is, not tied to a specific faculty, but implemented on the basis of SAU (strategic academic units) - cross-disciplinary consortia for the implementation of research projects that train specialists in advanced research and technology. These are the SAE Siberian Institute of the Future, SAE Institute of Biomedicine, SAE Institute of the Human in the Digital Era", - Pavlov explained.
In total 14 autonomous master's programs are being implemented. Surely no one will say which particular specialties will be in demand in a few years. But at least it can be argued: the ability to work at the junction of sciences: physics, chemistry and biology; computer science, mathematics and sociology and so on will be a big profit; because the tasks of the future - are cross-disciplinary tasks, he added. It is precisely on this that the autonomous master's programs of TSU are "specialized" in, which prepare for a rapidly changing future.
