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


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.
