The research presents a pedagogical strategy for the journalist’s education in the system of higher education in modern Europe in the case of Ukraine. The article deals with a problem of social competence development as a part of the teaching and learning process. The main objectives of social competences development are defined. Personal, social and universal dimensions of such competence are the main parameters of the curricular and academic content of such professional engagement. The most recent research and the best practices of world journalism education determined several fundamental principles of the most effective educational process management. The personal determinants of the future journalist's altruistic intention dynamically depend on natural and managed factors. The six binary pairs described the factors in terms of personal orientation, objectification of social interest and level of competences. The authors believe that both the presented strategy and the research will inspire educators and researchers for challenges and innovation in order to get the best result.
