In the Communications and International Public Relations program, professors teach interactive classes, heads of communications agencies share first-hand experience, and students benefit from multicultural discussions and challenging project work. This two-year full-time master’s degree program focuses on the promotion of scientific innovations, products, or technologies through interaction with businesses, government, and international organizations. Courses will be delivered in English by academics and practitioners using innovative educational technologies.

If you are a bachelor’s degree holder proficient in English and strive to be a public relations and communications professional, this program has been designed for you.

As a result of this program, you will:

  • be better equipped for international cooperation in research and innovation as well as for interaction with businesses.
  • improve your knowledge and skills in public relations and communications.
  • gain practical experience through interaction with PR professionals, visits to various organizations, and an internship in a relevant department of a government, business, or nonprofit organization.

The program has a distinct practical focus on professional training and development. In addition, similar to other master’s degree programs, it involves research work that permeates all four semesters of studies and culminates in a master’s thesis.


Admission to International Master’s Programs at MISiS is open to both Russian and international students. Given that all classes will be conducted in English, we recommend that non-native speakers of English achieve a TOEFL score of at least 525 (paper-based) or 200 (computer-based) prior to admission. Students who wish to improve their English language skills will have the opportunity to take English classes either in an intensive language program a month before the official start of the Master’s program courses or anytime throughout the entire period of study in regular English Language classes.

To apply for a two-year Master’s program at MISiS, the applicant must hold a Bachelor’s degree. Upon the completion of the program of study at MISiS, the applicant will receive a Russian State diploma and a European Diploma Supplement.
