On 26 November, another season of the School Inter-Ethnic Journalism concluded at the Faculty of Journalism of Voronezh State University. Nine graduates (students from the Faculty of Journalism, the Faculty of Romance and Germanic Philology, and the Faculty of Physics) received their certificates. This year, they were awarded with two types of certificates: besides graduating from the “main” school they also graduated from the online school of inter-ethnic journalism. The students of the programme listened to pre-recorded lectures by lecturers from Moscow State University and Saint Petersburg State University and practising journalists from different parts of Russia and they created their own videos.
The programme was held at the Faculty of Journalism of Voronezh State University and lasted for two months. When the university switched to distance learning, the school also continued its lessons online. Before that, the students had had a chance to visit the Ethnographic Museum of VSU, Voronezh synagogue, and go on a tour “Multinational Voronezh”. During the programme, they wrote about 50 works which were published at the regional page of the school on the website “National accent” and in “Obozrevatel.vrn”. The certificates were awarded on 26 November in the regional House of Journalists.
