This article covers special features of professional training of social science students in the economic aspect. Research activity is an integral part of professional training of university students as it forms personal qualities that make up the human capital. Authors mention that specialists of different spheres are required to improve their competitive performance as well as master scientific research competencies in the modern world. Anthropocentric paradigm of modern research implies giving special priority to a person and person’s needs as well as determining important aspects of development of society and economy. Social features of the society include economic factors. Thus, professional training of social science students is an important part of economic components of the society. The notion “human capital” is frequently used in modern economic research. In his work “Human Capital Theory”, Theodore Schulz, an American economist, considers this term as a measure that determines a person’s ability to make money. According to economic theory, human capital is a stock of personal qualities that are formed throughout life: knowledge, skills, talent, health, etc. It should be noted that such qualities are not given to a person only at the moment of birth, they are formed in the process of studying and getting experience. As crisis and transformation processes become deeper nowadays, social image of the society is rapidly changing, all life spheres are being updated, social tension is growing.
