Abstract. The article deals with the problem of educational influence on the students’ citizenship in the multicultural environment of a higher school. The key idea of the research is that the personal ethnic language-and-culture experience is the basis of the citizenship which is shown in the multicultural environment of a higher school and influences the ways, in which a student masters a foreign language and foreign culture. Personal awareness of their experience and features of the native national culture determines the personal behavior in intercultural and professional communication in a foreign language. Therefore, universities should take into account the task of developing awareness of the civic position while training the national specialists. Our research work is aimed at studying the students’ conscious attitude to the peculiarities of the national culture and identifying themselves with the bearers of the native culture. To achieve the goal, a theoretical analysis of the scientific researches and an empirical method of a survey have been applied with the students of Moscow universities. The results obtained have shown the insufficient degree of students’ awareness of the specifics of the national culture; subsequently it can have a certain influence on the professional activities and communication of a person, who acts as a citizen of their country. We have come to the conclusion that it is required to make educational influence on development of the conscious citizenship of the student’s language-and-culture personality. We suggest applying the author’s technology of professional language training of students in the multicultural environment at higher schools. This technology involves language-and-culture content based on the principle of the dialogue between cultures (the native national and foreign ones) in a foreign language. The prospects for further research are development of the content of this technology, taking into account the specifics of its implementation in the educational language training of not only the Russian students, but also the foreign ones.

Keywords: citizenship, language-and-culture personality, culture, multicultural environment, ethnic language-and-culture experience, language training.
