Abstract:

The authors of this paper study transformations in the technologies of patriotic education of Russian students in the post-Soviet period. Their research aims to find ways for effective interaction between the state and students in the development of civic culture, which required the analysis of legislation and sociological literature on patriotic education. The theoretical basis is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of youth, data from all-Russian sociological surveys and the results of the analysis of grant competitions to support social initiatives of young people held in 2017-2018 by the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh).

The authors draw attention to the paradoxical situation in the social institute of higher education — the gap between the functions of the translation of professional knowledge and the reproduction of culture, the education of a professional and a citizen. It was caused by societal transformations of the post-Soviet period and modernization changes in higher education at the beginning of the 21st century. The idea of a positive social initiative of students as the basis of modern patriotic education is being developed.

A new form of interaction between the state and students gains more attention — grant support for socially significant initiatives. The authors show the high level of patriotism of the Russian students and the positive dynamics of their understanding of patriotism as a positive social activity. The necessity and possibility of developing a unified approach to the implementation of civil and patriotic education of students in Russian universities is substantiated.
