Innovative educational technologies are broadly introduced in the department; the most modern equipment is applied in the educational process. In 2008 we opened the most modern language laboratory, the only one in the Volga region, equipped by the unique apparatus of the Finnish company Sanako.

Interpreters and translators are currently in high demand on the labor market. They may build successful careers in tourism, global economy, be personal interpreters-consultants and take part in business meetings, negotiations, international conferences, scientific symposiums.
