28 students embarked on a tour to visit the world's largest country, Russia. There they visited the luxurious palaces, onion-dome-designed churches and world-renowned museums to experience a mix of Soviet and Western cultures. Students also had a chance to attend a talk on the Russian media system and Russian social media given by the Director of School of Journalism and Mass Communications in St. Petersburg State University. This global experience allowed our students to enrich their understanding of the Russian culture and media system.
