International Relations (MA)

About the Programme 
The International Relations programme at SZTE has a competitive edge, as ours is 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 program usually pursue careers in government or the public sector at international firms, multinational corporations or civil society organisations. There is also the opportunity to continue studies in PhD programmes.

SZTE Experience


Christopher_SolamanChristopher Solaman - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - 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 live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
