Program description

Ethnic and Minority Policy MA

The Ethnic and Minority Policy Master Program deals with minority issues and ethnic diversity in the region of Eastern and Central Europe with regard to the integration process of the countries of the region into the international community of the European Union.

The serious ethnic conflicts of the region, the demand for countries to meet European norms in the area of minority issues, the increase in migration, and the simultaneous growth of xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and homophobia all contribute to a pressing need in Eastern and Central Europe for highly trained professionals who have the insight and expertise to identify the main political, social and psychological reasons behind tensions and discriminations and who are also equipped with the skills and techniques to handle and moderate these conflicts.

Thus, it is a key function of the Program to provide the expertise necessary for this effort specifically in the European space. On the other hand, much of the research analyses, the scientific methods as well as the ‘Eastern and Central Europe experiences’ discussed in the Program have relevance also to those interested students who study ethnicity, race, and majority-minority relations elsewhere in the world.

Admission requirements

Bachelor’s degree

Language requirements

Certification of English knowledge (both written and oral): IELTS Score: 5.5 or TOEFL IBT Band: 46-59 or Cambridge English Scale Score: 162.

If the applicant is unable to prove their knowledge of English with any of the above certifications, he or she must participate in a Skype interview or attend a prearranged interview (either in Hungary in person or on an on-the-spot admission abroad) organized by the Faculty and/or its delegates. The interview also seeks to assess the general and professional knowledge and interest of the applicant. Any letter of acceptance issued by the Faculty of Social Sciences is based on the verified fact that the applicant's command of English has been assessed; therefore, they are considered eligible to pursue their higher studies at the institution. If the applicant can prove that they competed their former education in entirely in English by submitting a notarized attestation and a detailed academic transcript, no proof of language knowledge will be required throughout the admission process.
