International Relations (MA)

About the Programme

The International Relations programme at SZTE has a competetive edge, as we are the only law school in Hungary offering an interdisciplinary curriculum in Business Economics and International (Economic) Relations, with further emphasis on Political Sciences, European Studies and Law. Students admitted into the programme (MIR) are integrated into a diverse and international student body, recruited mainly from Hungary, its neighboring countries in the Western Balkans, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and China. MIR graduates are knowledgeable about different fields of legal studies and social sciences, are able to interpret global and regional issues in an international context and are familiar with the theoretical and practical implications of International Relations.


Our graduates are able to place the perspectives of the Central-Eastern European region in a framework of International Relations in solving legal and economic challenges. We train professionals in the study of the fundamental institutions, resources and processes, both in legislation and in practice, that define the most important economic powers in international, European and other contexts.

As graduates, our students are familiar with the social implications of these legal and political institutions, resources and processes that might influence the economy, politics and society of other countries as well. Graduates of the Faculty usually pursue careers in government or the public sector at international firms or civil organisations. There is also the 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.

I’m from Brazil, but I feel very comfortable in Szeged. Attending the courses, I acquired thorough knowledge, which was helped by the well-equipped labs, and the modern library of the University. Despite the hustle and bustle, the town is still safe, the quality of life is considerably high, and we receive every assistance to fit in, such as excellent program administration or help searching for accommodations.
