The article assumes an analysis of information as one of the most important socially significant resources of modern civilization. The authors stressed that main paradigm characteristic of modern social theory can be expressed by the thesis about the impossibility of direct access to social phenomena. In modern civilization, information is becoming one of the most important socially significant resources. The authors think that its role as a strategic resource increases with the development of network technologies that accelerate data transfer and facilitate the search for necessary information. The authors are confident that the role of higher education in this process is key. But it itself is faced with a huge number of problems, one of which is improving the quality of its functioning and guaranteeing the results of its activities. This problem is closely related to the implementation of innovations. The authors suggest that innovation in education should be understood as an innovation designed to resolve the current problem situation in order to optimize the educational process, improve its quality or organize favorable conditions for the assimilation of material by students. Based on a critical approach to reform the current system of higher education the paper touches upon the need to change the process infornatization of humanities education.. The authors conclude that the development of humanities education in the information society is aimed at implementing an interdisciplinary approach, ie should ensure the effectiveness of the development and application of humanities knowledge and form a conscious responsible choice in a variety of cultural meanings, cultural self-determination.
