Научно-исследовательская работа – одно из важных слагаемых учебного процесса студентов кафедры журналистики. В течение учебы они сталкиваются с подготовкой рефератов по различным курсам, курсовых, дипломных и магистерских работ. Эти формы учебного исследования требуют от студентов не только определенных знаний в выбранной ими теме, но и владения основными навыками исследовательского труда. Представления о сущности и задачах изучения журналистики, о совокупности методов и методик научного исследования, понятие о процессе исследования как движении мысли от определения темы до завершающей работу исследователя интерпретации полученных результатов – все эти аспекты освещаются в рамках курса «Специфика научного текста».
