Gayane Davtyan, a student of the Faculty of Sociology of YSU, presented a report on "The level of trust of RA citizens in the Republic of Armenia towards state institutions". According to Gayane, she is participating in a conference for the first time, and this is an attempt to understand how to present herself at conferences.
"The professorial staff of our faculty is constantly in touch with students to help them write scientific works, publish articles, maintain research ethics, and other issues. I attach great importance to the fact that thanks to the strong student-lecturer connection, we are able to record successful scientific results," Gayane said.
