From the moment of foundation the
High Anthropological School is realized as scientific and
educational institution. Personnel politics is directed
at high scientific level of lecturers, their willing to
non-standard forms of education and orientation on indissoluble
unity of scientific and pedagogical activities. That’s why
actively working scientist from Modova and abroad are engaged
as lecturers and professors of the H.A.S.
Both students and lecturers are
aimed at active and creative scientific activity.
For the realization of the principle goal of High Anthropological
School it is crucially important to develop scientific-research
activity of both staff and students, because from the academic
point of view researches serve to objectives set. The most
effective is scientific creativity to form independent thinking,
elaborate skills of creative activity and quick self-education.
Overstepping the limits of textbooks’ non-problematic presentation
that remain behind of contemporary level of sciencies in
addition, alumni succesfully applicate gained skills later
on in professional activity tasks sometimes far from degree
In the system of tutorial education
students conduct their own researches presenting the results
during the tutorial seminars, student conferences, etc.
They become active participants of scientific projects.
It wouldn’t be possible without that atmosphere of high
creative intellectual tension.
In 1999-2003 students and lecturers
prepared for editing and already published 18 scientific
monographies and textbooks (14 monographies and 4 textbooks)
and more than 120 articles.
Scientific activity of the
H.A.S. students and lecturers demonstrates realization of
interdisciplinary approaches in solving scientific problems.
It is realized in thematic orientation of departments.

pecularities and tolerance problems in communictaion of
Moldova’s ethnic groups.
Administration and Informational
In the academic activity of Administration
and Informational Technologies Department staff there are
the following priority directions: modern informational
technologies, mathematical modelling of ecological processes
(B.P. Rybakin, E.N. Russeva), processes of production in
the organizations improvement, management, informational
technologies in reaching decisions (C.V. Gayndrik).
Breadth of scientific problematics
and interdisciplinarity of researches in the H.A.S. determine
development of the number of scientific tematic directions,
uniting students and staff members of different departments:

South Eastern, Central and Eastern Europe in Eneolithic
– Brazen – Iron Ages. The priority in this direction is

of the new field researches technologies and methods; creation
of all the archaeological materials database; working out
of the software allowing to create three-dimensional model
of the excavation with contextual bedding of all finds,
statistical data processing, detailed data search by separate
characteristics, creation of graphical applications (M.E.
Tkaciuk, G.V. Zasypkina, E.I. Zverev, D.A. Topal, V. Hamuraru).
7. Mathematical modelling of natural
processes interactions (B.P. Rybakin, R. Cujba, S. Prisacari,
