Civic Effects of Higher Education in Russia: Religiosity, Social Capital and the "Pure Teaching Effect" of Educational Programmes

Higher education is valued as one of the main sources of civic participation and social benefit. In spite of the significant growth in the number of students over the last 20 years, Russia is still considered to be a country with a low level of civic engagement. Our study aims to respond to this contradictory standing and to explain the causes of student civic engagement. The survey conducted in 10 state universities has shown a difference in civic engagement index values among students from 4 educational programmes. The results of linear regression models have shown that, in addition to the 'pure teaching effect', such factors as religiosity and social capital influence student civic engagement.
