About the Faculty – Online Broschure
ELTE's Lágymányos Campus, home to three ELTE Faculties including the Faculty of Social Sciences, is located on the bank of the Danube in the Southern part of Budapest, with other universities and research institutes situated nearby. The modern building is in a peaceful location which is accessible for people with disabilities.
ELTE Faculty of Social Sciences is the country’s largest social science education centre with numerous internationally-renowned and widely-published faculty members guaranteeing the highest possible level of teaching. Our school – besides having strict academic requirements – has an open and collegial atmosphere where students enjoy studying. The staff’s readiness and willingness to help makes our institution a truly inspiring and stimulating environment.
We have a Faculty with outstanding professional knowledge, and we know exactly what kind of employees employers look for on the job market. The researchers and professionals who teach our courses make every effort to incorporate the results of research in the humanities and natural sciences, to back up theory with practical approaches, and to go beyond skills development to inspire students to think critically, to seek constructive solutions, and to have an open worldview.
We recommend our courses especially to those who wish to enhance their knowledge in the field of social sciences or who wish to specialise in a narrower field of study within it. We also welcome students with various scientific backgrounds who provide significant added value to all that is taught at our Faculty.
Tolerance and openness are the core values of our Faculty. The programmes that go beyond pure academic study (festivals, film clubs, discussions and debates) provide students with the opportunity to get to know each other’s cultural backgrounds.
Students participating in our English language programmes not only receive an internationally- recognised degree, they also enjoy the benefits of being a member of the ELTE community. These include sporting opportunities at our sports facilities, the services of the country’s largest university library, and numerous other benefits.
