Abstract:

The article is a variant of the analysis of the role of the socio-cultural environment of the university in determining the criteria for the socialization of the younger generation. The analysis of the problem is carried out on the basis of empirical research at the Irkutsk National Research Technical University. In the process of considering a comprehensive assessment of the level of socialization of students, four criteria are distinguished (value, behavioral, empathic, professional motivation), and on the example of empirical study of this problem, the possibility of their measurement is fragmentarily illustrated. The article presents a part of the data obtained in the course of a survey conducted in the summer of 2020 by a questionnaire method (N = 191, sample type — quota). The participants assessed certain parameters of the socialization process, expressed opinions about the nature and causes of various processes and phenomena related to their education at the university. The ideal of socialization in the form of a socially mature and successful personality is associated not only with the manifestation of personal qualities, but also with the professional self-realization of a person. This is demonstrated by the relationship between the criteria of socialization and their complex systemic configuration. Their assessment makes it possible to have a corrective effect on the conditions for organizing the process of socialization in the socio-cultural environment of the university. This is the place where the social space is formed with the aim of influencing the individual with the help of mechanisms developed by the educational institution over the long years of its existence.

Keywords:
