Abstract

The article is devoted to the problem of educational trajectories formation in the development of multidisciplinary undergraduate and graduate programs by specialty “Land management and cadastres” in Saint Petersburg State University. The authors express their viewpoint on the problem of developing a systemic approach for forming the structure of interdisciplinary programs, suggesting cooperation between different areas of knowledge. It gives the possibility to create an integrated picture about the complex multi-level objects of studying. In their article, the authors point out that in the framework of the specialty “Land management and cadastres” they have used a multidisciplinary approach while forming the educational trajectory with a significant component in the field of Earth Sciences. In this article, the authors stated the problems facing developers of the basic educational programs of higher education in the conditions of increasing influence of the needs of the labor market and engagement of employers in the formation of the content of vocational training. The authors investigate the problem of interaction with employers in the development and implementation of the basic educational programs of higher education with the increasing role of interdisciplinary and modular approach in the formation of the educational process at the University. The authors expound the basic principles of development of education programs within the framework of their own educational standard of St. Petersburg State University, which is a distinctive feature of the professional training of specialists in the field of “Land management and cadastres” at the Institute of Earth Sciences of Saint Petersburg State University.
