Researched is the problem of effectiveness of extremism prevention in Yaroslavl universities. It was fixed that the most part of students (without difference in gender and age) have superficial ideas about extremism that makes it difficult to fight extremism among young people. The research fixed that basic knowledges, skills and practices for extremism and terrorism opposition students get during the study law, sociology of deviation, politology, conflict sociology and philosophy. It was fixed that interactive methods, forms and devices of study make a tolerance, blame and active civic position. It was demonstrated that students, who have a high-educated parents are more oriented to civic and patriotic values, than students, who have not high-educated parents or have only one of this. Above all, test shows that education level effects on emotional problems of everyday communication too. If a student have high-education parents, emotional acts not damage everyday contact with other people. It was fixed that adult students have more open lections of any confessions and law enforcements than the young ones. The authors suggest some actions for the extremism prevention effectiveness growth in universities of the country.

Key words: Prevention of extremism, interactive methods and forms of education, students, university.
