The Social Integration programme of Eötvös Loránd University provides students with knowledge about the multifaceted nature of intercultural issues, multi/interculturalism, and social integration by means of a multidisciplinary approach, which includes psychology, education, sociology, and anthropology.


The Social Integration programme of Eötvös Loránd University is both theory-based and practice oriented. Courses are based on latest research in relevant fields, and students are given opportunities to test and apply their theoretical knowledge in practical situations. Approximately half of the program consists of trainings, seminars, and field work.

This program is recommended to applicants who are interested in the cultural, intercultural, and social aspects of psychology and education. We look for those applicants who see a great challenge in the organization of the working together of people of different sociocultural backgrounds, in the initiating and maintaining of intercultural dialogue, in the efficient resolution of emerging conflicts, and in profiting on the assets of diversity as well as in the promotion of the living together and successful cooperation of various minority and majority groups.

This program enables students to understand and effectively work with culturally diverse populations in different institutions and in different settings, ranging from small communities to multinational corporations. With their sound knowledge and competences in intercultural psychology and education, graduates of the program will be able to consciously treat the diversity of values in different societies, helping to promote social equity, human rights, social integration and cooperation of different minority and majority groups. Completing the program, students will be prepared to pursue doctoral studies, as well. 

Strength of program

The program, which is one of the few of its kind in Europe, is strongly committed to interdisciplinary studies with a focus on psychological and educational issues. Focusing on the human dimensions of intercultural issues and interactions, while also giving ample consideration to their global context, the Program distinguishes macro-historical, macro-political or macro-sociological approaches.

Career paths

Graduates will be able to understand the characteristics of intercultural relations and communication and co-ordinate the work of people from different cultures effectively in various fields both at national and international level in public administration, minority self-government, minority and mainstream media, schools as well as other formal and informal educational institutions, multi-national and civil organizations. After receiving an MA degree, students may apply to continue their studies in our PhD program.
