I'm study at the Institute of Journalism at BSU. Training journalists at the BSU started in 1944. The Faculty of Journalism was singled out as an independent unit of the BSU in 1967 with Grigory.V. Bulatskiy. The admissions to the faculty is carried out the basis of entrance examinations. 6 professors and 24 associate professors conduct teaching of more than 650 students of day study and 300 correspondence students.

The students get educations in the following specialties: International Journalism, Literary Work, Information and Communication, Journalism (press media), Web-journalism and new specialties – Media Management.

Basic course of study consists of five years. Each year includes two semesters, examination sessions, practical classes, tests. Much attention is paid to probationary training. Each year students have at least one month of creative training in city, regional or republic newspapers on local and nation radio and TV, in various press-centers etc.

The student must complete and protect research work. He conducts independent research of their topic. Research is process that includes thinking up interesting project to work on and of finding answers to questions. Research is hard work but interesting, creative and sometimes frustrating work. Research includes an introduction and sections on methods, findings, and discussion, conclusions and reference lists. Often students chose the comparison and analysis In work, use tables, charts, figures. They try to be accurate in result research, used formal style, many quotations. Quotations are useful as a form of “evidence”. My reference list can include internet-books, paper-books, websites.

Young People in the Modern World. The Idea of Happiness. Problems of an Individual. Stress.

Young people are ambitious, motivated, dynamic. They are looking for happiness.

The idea of ​​happiness suggested by Martin Seligman, an American psychologist. He believes that the formula of happiness consists of Set range, Circumstances, Voluntary Control. We are all born with a certain "set-point" of happiness, determined by our genes. The circumstances we live in influence our level of happiness and we don't always have a lot of control over our circumstances. Voluntary Control - This third factor is the most important factor in the equation, because we can control it. It includes all aspects of our life, includes the way you choose to think about and act on the past, present, and future.

Happiness for me is my family, my friends. I want to have a good and interesting job, big house, big family. As Diderot said, "The happiest man is he who gives happiness to the greatest number of people". I agree with these words.

Many problems exist in modern society. The most important - it's alcohol abuse, smoking and drugs. Alcohol abuse is a pervasive problem. Some reasons that teens use alcohol and other drugs are: curiosity, desire to feel older, to please others, to reduce stress and relax, boredom. Some people drink because they think it will help them escape from their problems.

Drug abuse. Young people are often introduced to drug taking by their friends. Many users take drugs to escape from a life that may seem too hard to bear. Drugs are often the cause of death among young people.

Smoking. Smoking should be banned in all public places like theatres, cinemas and restaurants. Great efforts should be made to inform young people especially of the dire consequences of taking up the habit.

Stress is a topical problem of the contemporary society. Many people suffer from stress and the illnesses it can cause. We can't avoid stress. Stress can happen to anyone. Stress-based illness doesn't happen all at once.

Types of Stress

Emotional Stress (When arguments, disagreements, and conflicts cause CHANGES in your personal life – that is stress.)

Illness and are all CHANGES in your body condition.

A major source of stress is overdriving yourself. If you are working (or partying) 16 hours a day, you will have reduced your available time for rest. Sooner or later, the energy drain on your system will cause the body to fall behind in its repair work

Environmental Factors

Taking responsibility for another person's actions is a major stressor.
