The robust presence of the United States throughout the world, well observable in the contexts of politics, economy, and culture, calls for a body of experts who – aside from having excellent English language skills – have a specialised knowledge in the history, politics, society, culture, language, and literature of the United States. With this aim in mind, the American Studies MA program seeks to impart its graduates with the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills that can be fruitfully utilized in both private and public sector establishments interested in the communication and/or representation of American values and interests.

The two-year-long program does not confer teaching qualifications. Students are eligible for admission to Ph.D. programs. In the scope of the Master Course, students will have opportunities for preparation for doctoral studies.... [-]

English is the lingua franca, the most important language for communication in the globalized 21st century. It is a fact of life that everywhere experts are needed who not only speak English correctly but who are also familiar with the societies and cultures of those countries where English is the first language. Experience has shown that an extraordinarily large number of employers seek experts with not merely an excellent command of the language, but also with the ability to make good use of their knowledge of the English-speaking world. The transmission of such cultural knowledge is the foundation of this program.

In this program, students become proficient in understanding and producing academic and media-oriented publications in the fields of English literature, socio-cultural history of the English language-based cultures (especially Great Britain, Ireland, Canada and Australia), applied and theoretical linguistics, mediating in English and their native language in specialised cultural, economic and political areas, teaching and transmitting knowledge concerning English literature and linguistics, and English language-based cultures and societies....

The aim of this setup is to give flexibility, and at the same time guidance so that students gain a thorough coverage and a sound grounding in the major fields of philosophy. At the same time, students are required to engage in research either in some areas of the history of philosophy or in some field of systematic philosophy. These studies lead up to the MA thesis project.... [-]

Semiotics is an ancient discipline with a long history, which has gained a firm theoretical foundation during the 19th century and an ever-growing significance over the last 50 years. This discipline is now in a period of very intensive, concentrated research and self-identification on the map of contemporary science.

The interdisciplinary Semiotics MA program at ELTE trains students to become well-trained specialists in semiotics of culture with a global overview of the various fields of humanities: literary studies, linguistics, philosophy, visual arts and general art studies – including approaches to the fine arts, films, theatre and music – and also the most contemporary methods of research synthesized from a semiotic methodological point of view. At the same time, choosing the specific field for degree thesis students can gain specialized knowledge in one subfield of the semiotics of humanities (e.g., the literary, visual, musical, theoretical semiotics, and ethnosemiotics). The program is designed to be flexible to motivate students to find the best Hungarian specialists in the given field and assist them to become involved in international research and dialogues with foreign scholars and lecturers. The curriculum consists of courses on the history and theory of semiotics; language, communication, texts, and translation; theory of meaning, logic, argumentation; field studies of cultural, national and special semiotic systems; various forms of applied semiotics and semiotic pragmatics in general. The program also puts emphasis on the preparation of students for Ph.D. studies to plan their research careers.... [-]

TEMA+ European Territories: Heritage and Development is a two-year (120 ECTS), bilingual (English and French) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree program (EMJMD), involving five universities from the EU and Canada. The TEMA+ Consortium is coordinated from ELTE and formed by the École des Hautes en Sciences Sociales in Paris (EHESS), the University of Catania (UNICT), the Charles University, Prague (CUNI), and the Laval University from Canada (UL) in cooperation with the European Heritage Label (EHL) and different UNESCO offices.

The goal of this program is to provide a better understanding of the growing presence and importance of cultural heritage in a European context by applying a multinational, interdisciplinary approach. Over the past decade, academics have started recognizing the importance and impact of European cultural heritage on identity and contemporary culture. For this reason, the consortium has commonly decided to use its expertise to develop a new interdisciplinary program and curriculum and to create the first European joint master program on European Heritage Studies that connects the academic fields of Social Sciences and Humanities....
