Languages of publication



The practical aspect of integrated approach to the preparation of future specialists in Ukraine and abroad has been investigated in the article. The mentioned approach facilitates the establishment of conceptual intercommunications among professionally oriented disciplines and liberal arts so far as it’s based on several subjects common ideas. The curricula, structural abstracts, disciplines programs analysis of some countries universities (the USA, Great Britain, Australia, Switzerland and Ukraine) has been carried out by the author. The analysis has highlighted the positive effect of public-spirited and social sciences on future professional personality. The disciplines synthesized liberal arts and narrow professional spheres of study are taught at the most of universities occupying leader positions of the world rating. The efficiency of the integrated approach is confirmed by demand on these higher educational establishments graduating students in the labour market. The examination of thirteen Ukrainian higher educational establishments’ curricula certifies that the humanitarian constituent of educational process is presented by the research discipline group like Philosophy, Political science, Culture study, History of Ukraine, Foreign language, Bases of scientific research. However, it is a mainly standard set of disciplines regardless of any specialty or students competence level. The investigation of scientific researches and practical developments testifies to availability of educational courses and appropriate methodical support. What is more, most of them have been put to an evaluation test, confirmed their application expediency at higher school by the results promulgation in professional editions, defense of dissertations, edition of methodical recommendations and manuals. But quite often the groundwork goes waste and turns into passive «portfolio» of national science. We are convinced the synthesis of the professionally oriented and base material of liberal arts promotes the effective teaching of such special courses as «Professional Business Communication», «Public Relations», «Business Psychology», «Professional Foreign Language» at all stages of professional training. The integrated special courses have positive impacts on the acquisition of professional competences and skills. The research also underlines the key role of integrated disciplines in addressing the socioeconomic challenges.
