The Romanian Language, Literature and Culture programme of Eötvös Loránd University provides for a thorough training in order for students to be able to work towards a PhD level. The program also focuses on practical training so that those who graduate will have a chance to engage in the competitive sphere of the labour market (translator, editor, publisher, etc.). Note that the program does not offer teaching qualifications.
The aim of this course is to train high-level specialists capable of meeting the specific demands of the labour market in the fields of cultural and intercultural exchange. In addition to local, national or international authorities in the public sector, it is important to underline the growing need for Romanian graduates in the private sector, e.g. with multinational companies.
