Abstract
The article presents results of empirical research devoted to perception and attitudes towards European values among Russian bachelor students of Moscow University. Group discussion (focs-groups) were conducted. 60 bachelor students from MSUPE (“Psychology” and “Youth work” learning directions) took part in the study. The focus groups’ transcripts were analyzed using the phenomenological approach as well as “grounded theory”. It was presumed that the attitude towards European values would be controversial and that students of different leaning directions would have specific characteristics in their perception of European values. The research results show that the representations of European values among Russian bachelor students can be divided into three semantic groups: “Values as social practices”, “Values in social-political sphere”, “Material culture values”. Attitudes towards them is characterized by abundance of controversial semantics.
