Handling the problem of the definition of objectives in the system of tertiary school practice, we proceed from the assumption of the existence of an explicit social mechanism allowing transmittance of social demands into the content of education. The framework of this mechanism is based on the specific infrastructure that includes social procurement for a specialist, social procurement for educational institution, and state order in the field of higher education. The term “social procurement” emerged in the soviet scientific and pedagogic literature in the 70's of the XX th century. At present time this term signifies a topical social need for the society on the whole or in part. Social procurement and state order in the field of education are not to be confounded. At all times the advanced ideas in the field of education were formulated prior to state order, outpaced it, and at a certain stage of development came into antagonism with it. The main methods of our research are considered to be the dialectic method alongside with such methods as historic-genetic, comparative and hypothetical deductive ones. Thereof, three laws of forming social procurement in the field of education were observed and formulated. The first law is identified as “center of balance shifting in the structure of the social procurement”. It states that in certain time intervals society raises demands either to professional training of specialists or to their personality (shifts the center of balance). The second law manifests “the law of replacement of content of social procurement”. In the periods of social conflicts or social changes (bifurcation) the society raises demands to personality; in the periods of steady progressive development the society raises demands to professional training. The third law is “the law of displacement of limits in social procurement”, i.e. limits of displacement of shifting the balance point, as a rule, coincide with the margins of social conflicts (nonbinding revolution outcome) or social changes in the society (nonbinding bifurcations). Correlative dependence is with little effort disclosed between state orders and social procurement in the field of higher education, it ultimate manifestation is observed mostly in state order and laws of content replacement and displacement of social procurement limits.
