About the Programme

The MA programme in English Studies is designed to provide students with interpretive skills, academic research tools, and a critical perspective in the fields of English Studies. Students are introduced to basic theoretical fields, such as the history and theory of literature, theories of language, the social uses of language, gender studies and the multimediality of culture. An overview of academic research tools in the information society and the digital humanities is presented during the course of studies, and students participate in interactive seminars, research practice and thesis writing consultations.


Rigorous coursework develops abilities of understanding the human subject in the linguistic, historical and ideological complexities of society. During the course of the programme, there is a focus on developing skills of academic research, critical thinking, argumentative academic writing, and analytical skills. Graduates of the Faculty usually pursue careers in cultural and public administration, tourism, media and international business. There is also an opportunity to continue studies in PhD programmes.

SZTE Experience


Christopher_SolamanChristopher Solaman - Faculty of Arts - German Studies

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
