DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAMME

The goal of Hungarian Language–Hungarian Studies training is to increase the language competence and “Hungarology” knowledge acquired at universities outside Hungary. The programme, which is a 10-month-long accredited training programme between September 2016 and June 2017, offers 26–55 ECTS credit points. The University of Pecs verifies the completion of the studies by issuing a certificate.


Improving the language skills is a major goal of the training, that is, the students will attend 12–28 language classes per week in small groups. At the end of the language course they will take an international ECL exam (intermediate or advanced level) which is authorized by the Hungarian state.


The courses in Hungarian Studies transfer complex and diverse knowledge of present Hungary and its cultural heritage. Beside compulsory lectures and seminars students take part in optional seminars according to their individual field of interest. Compulsory lectures/seminars: History, Literature, Linguistics, Ethnography, History of Arts and Music, Geography, Hungarian Society Today, Economics, Cultural and Political System. Students can choose from the following subjects according to their interest: History, History of Literature, Contemporary Literature, Translation of Literary Works, Linguistics, History of Film, History of Theatre.


The programme consists of two semesters including a study period of 13/15 weeks (with at least 28–32 lessons weekly), and an exam period of 4 weeks (with maximum 4 exams in each semester). There are three types of curriculum available according to the different language competence of the students.
