Kyiv Mohyla School of Journalism Flourishes Despite Tabachnik
"Our School of Journalism deliberately refused the services of the Ministry of Education. I believe that this trend will develop further. We thank the Ministry of Education for the opportunity to experiment and find new models for our school." Yevhen Fedchenko - Director of the Kyiv-Mohyla J-School
Last July, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of Ukraine, led by D. Tabachnik, rejected governmental funding for National University "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy", specifically for the master's programs, including the programs of the School of Journalism.
The most heated debate was caused by the total elimination of funding for the Master's program in Journalism. It is precisely at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy where the most effective and successful program for media professionals in Ukraine took place for the last ten years. Furthermore, it is at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy where PhD programs in journalism are offered.
