The International Relations programme of Eötvös Loránd University offers the opportunity for students – following introductory courses in the first year – to choose from a wide range of elective seminars.
Strength of program
In addition to giving students grounding in history and theory, the BA in International Studies teaches future graduates about international politics, the European Union and equips them with practical knowledge that can be used in almost all countries around the world.
The knowledge acquired during the undergraduate courses lays the foundation for the MA in International Studies and other postgraduate qualifications in social sciences. Applicants will ideally be interested in social sciences and in the links between different countries, peoples and institutions and be keen to use their language skills.
We encourage our students to work independently and to solve tasks in teams. We rely on modern methodologies – including simulations – and we believe that adaptability and self-reflexivity are crucial in today’s fast changing world. Our aim is to give our students skills that they can be readily used wherever they seek employment after graduation.
The Department offers courses in international studies with a special focus on the European Union and Central Europe. During the three years of studies we equip our students with the necessary theoretical and historical basics to understand processes of global development. The skills our students acquire enable them to handle challenges in an increasingly globalized world both at private and public institutions. Our graduates may seek employment at financial and commercial institutions, in the public sector, in state and municipal administration, and also in the non-profit and non-governmental sector.
The undergraduate program enables students to apply for a master’s degree in International Relations or in any other areas of social sciences.
