Program Description

The goal of the MA degree program in International Relations is to train highly qualified experts with broad education in the social sciences who can interpret Hungary's place and role in the international situation and in Europe.

The International Relations MA degree is an interdisciplinary course addressing the global challenges and political and social issues. The goal of the program is not only to train highly qualified experts with broad education in the social sciences, but also to train critical citizens who can understand global policies, uncover political manipulations and can interprete processes in an objective way, considering multiple perspectives. We have a wide range of courses focusing on political processes, electoral systems and global issues, dealing with the developing countries and the growing Asian states, while we also offer a deep insight into the European and Central Eastern European issues.

The two-year postgraduate course will provide you with the theoretical and practical context of international relations offering an intellectual preparation for a wide range of career choices. The graduates know and understand the developmental tendencies of the regions outside Europe and have thorough disciplinary knowledge in the areas of civilisation, world economy, international law, political science as well as practical skills in diplomacy, protocol and negotiation techniques. Equipped with these pieces of knowledge and skills they are properly qualified to pursue their studies in a doctoral degree program.
