Eรถtvรถs Lorรกnd University (ELTE) Faculty of Social Sciences Budapest


Welcome Welcome to ISOMIS!

We are delighted that you are interested in ISOMIS, which is the new Englishlanguage training center of the Faculty of Social Sciences at ELTE. Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is one of the largest universities in Hungary – a modern university with more than 375 years of tradition. Degrees issued by ELTE are acknowledged worldwide, and its course credits are transferable in all countries of the European Union. ELTE’s eight faculties – the Faculty of Social Sciences among them – are located in Budapest, the nearly two million-strong capital of Hungary. The city’s natural beauty, eclectic architecture and varied cultural life always sweep visitors off their feet. In addition to the above, our English-language majors and summer universities are good choices because we have a faculty with outstanding professional knowledge, and we know what kind of employees employers are looking for on the job market. The researchers and professionals who teach our courses always make every effort to incorporate the results of humanities and natural sciences, to supplement the teaching of theory with practical approaches, and to go beyond skills development to inspire students to critical social thought, to seek constructive solutions, and to have an open worldview.

We recommend our courses especially to those who wish to enhance or specialize their earlier social science knowledge. We also welcome students with various scientific backgrounds that provide significant added value to all that is taught by our internationally recognized experts.


Student Life

Student Life on the ELTE Campus

ELTE Lágymányosi Campus is located in Budapest’s southern half, on the banks of the Danube, with other universities and research institutes situated nearby. Our modern, handicap-accessible building provides a relaxed environment. Our faculty’s preparedness and willingness to help makes this a truly inspiring space. ELTE Faculty of Social Sciences is the country’s largest social science education center; we have numerous faculty members who are internationally renowned. This not only guarantees the highest level of instruction, but also assures that our school – despite strict academic requirements – has an open and collegial atmosphere in which students enjoy themselves. Students participating in our Englishlanguage programs not only receive an internationally recognized degree, but also enjoy the benefits of being a member of the ELTE community. This entails sporting opportunities at our athletic facilities, the services of the country’s largest university library, and numerous other benefits. Tolerance and openness are the principle values of our school. Those programs at ELTE that reach beyond studies (festivals, film clubs, discussions and debates) provide students with the opportunity to get to know one another’s cultural backgrounds.

Ethnic

Ethnic and Minority Studies Program MA (master degree)

Aim of the curriculum Our program deals with minority issues and ethnic diversity in the Central and Eastern European region with regard to the integration process of the countries of the region into the European Union. The modern principle of multiculturalism, protection of minority rights, equal opportunities, anti-discrimination and new challenges of inter-cultural integration of modern societies require more and more academics who intend to carry out research or teach about ethnic diversity and inter-ethnic relations. A key function of the Program is to provide the expertise necessary for this effort in the concrete European space. Further, much of the research analyses, scientific methods and even ‘CEE experiences’ are relevant for those who study ethnicity, race, and majority-minority relations elsewhere in the world.

Why to choose to earn a MA degree in this program?

There is a growing need for policy makers or expert advisors in issues and conflicts between regions, nations, ethnic groups, minorities and majorities in Hungary and various parts of Europe. There is a considerable demand for these types of professionals today, and this demand will increase in the future. We expect that our graduates will find jobs in various public or private agencies, e.g., in public (governmental) organizations and minority selfgovernments, in public education, in research institutes, in the media, in civic organizations and NGOs, and in all such programs and projects that aim to promote the successful social and cultural integration of minorities into the dominant society.

Budapest – Dive Budapest – Divercity

Over the past decade Budapest has become one of Central Europe’s favourite tourist and scholarly destinations among young people. This should come as no surprise, as Budapest features rich cultural programs, a plethora of cafés, ‘ruin pubs’ and baths, has a vibrant nightlife, offers affordable accommodation and services, and has a well-organized service structure for visitors and expats. With its rich cultural traditions and international atmosphere Budapest offers a vibrant student life. At the meeting point of East and West, Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is an excellent place to study old and new, cultures, societies, traditions as well as social transitions in progress. Our campus is situated on the Danube bank, on the south-western side of the city center, with excellent road and public transport connections to the very heart of Budapest.
