TOP-200 - "Modern Languages", TOP-300 - "Linguistics": RUDN enters the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019

TOP-200 - "Modern Languages", TOP-300 - "Linguistics": RUDN enters the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019

February 27, the results of the international subject ranking of universities QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019 are officially published. RUDN is presented in two subject rankings - “Modern Languages” (151-200 place) and “Linguistics” (251-300 place). The largest number of points received by the RUDN University in terms of the “Recognition of Employers” indicator: Linguistics - 80 points, Modern Languages - 75.5 points.

Having declared just 2 years ago Modern Languages as one of the priority areas, RUDN not only entered QS subject ranking in Modern Languages and Linguistics, but also immediately entered the top 200 and top 300, respectively.

"The results have been achieved due to integrated approach, concentration on publications in narrow subject and not only interdisciplinary journals Q1 and Q2 (articles in the Scopus database in this subject area) and joint research projects with foreign researchers", said Rector of RUDN Vladimir Filippov.

For example, the National Center for Scientific Research of France (Center National de la Recherche Scientifique, CNRS) for the first time signed an agreement with an educational institution, which made it possible to open the first Russian-French laboratory “Dynamics of Languages in a Minority Situation” at RUDN. It is headed by Alain Viaut, Head of the largest linguistic laboratory in France. Another project “Modern migration processes in the context of regional contradictions” is implemented with Italian colleagues and headed by Professor Roberta Alonzi from RUDN. The journal "Vestnik RUDN: Linguistics" entered the world database Web of Science and Scopus. The composition of the editorial board has almost completely changed in 2 years as well as the approach itself - each issue has become thematic with a guest editor - a recognized expert of international level.

RUDN linguists were recognized by the international expert community mostly due to incoming mobility — last year the Philological faculty Department of foreign languages alone invited linguists from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Great Britain, Vietnam, Denmark, China, Mexico, USA, Finland, France, South Korea, and Japan.

Students and teachers work as interpreters at federal and international events - not only socio-cultural, but also medical, sports etc, not only gaining in profile in the eyes of employers but confirming the expert status of RUDN in the preparation of linguists.

Two years ago, the Institute of Modern Languages, Intercultural Communication and Migration was created at RUDN. The focus of research is on minority and regional languages, dialects, social and cultural adaptation of migrants, sociolinguistics and linguoculturology. Studies on how migration processes and other extra-linguistic circumstances affect the state of modern languages and their further development are especially in demand.
