INTRODUCTION

 

The School of English and American Studies is the successor of the Department of English at Eötvös Loránd University, one of the oldest of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe. We continue an indeed very long and distinguished tradition of English studies in this region. Founded by the Englishman Arthur J. Patterson in 1886, at what was then the University of Hungary (established in 1635), the Department started to flourish under another Cambridge University graduate, Arthur B. Yolland, in the interwar years. It came under the chairmanship of Professor Miklós Szenczi between 1947 and 1949 and again between 1957 and 1967. Between 1949 and 1956, during the worst years of the Cold War, the Department came under the leadership of the literary scholar Tibor Lutter, who presided over the gradual dissolution of serious scholarship, unbiased teaching, and ultimately even of students. After the 1956 revolution, Professor Szenczi was reinstated as Head of Department. A first rate scholar educated in Scotland and first teaching at the University of London for ten years, he helped rebuild the Department along strictly scholarly lines in the best British tradition. Thus the Department in its first century was almost continuously defined by the British English tradition upheld by its founders and continued, almost exclusively, by the students of the Szenczi-school until quite recently.

The essential feature of this tradition was the study of English literature, a basic pattern of education maintained by successors of Professor Szenczi, such as Professors László Kéry, László Báti, Péter Egri, and Aladár Sarbu, until the end of the first century of the Department. The Department was strong in terms of the study of Shakespeare and the English Renaissance, the Romantics and modern English fiction. Among literary scholars, Kálmán Ruttkay has had lasting influence on his students.

Linguistics was not a central feature for a very long time, pursued in the post-war period in terms of descriptive grammar and pronunciation, though taught by influential instructors such as László T. András and Mrs. Éva Stephanides. We are proud that Professor László Országh also taught at the department briefly, right after World War II and again towards the end of his career, in the early 1970s.

English as a foreign language and teacher training as new disciplines came slowly of age in the 1970s and 1980s. Characteristic of the gradual changes already taking place in the 1980s, the one-hundredth anniversary of the Department was celebrated in 1986 by the biennial conference of the European Association for American Studies in Budapest.

The conference and the celebrations marked the growth of the Department in response to political and social changes, which became dramatic in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Department split into groups of English Studies, Linguistics, and Applied Linguistics. At the same time, a Centre for English Teacher Training was launched by Professor Péter Medgyes and a separate program in American Studies was set up in 1990.

The Department was transformed into a School in 1994, incorporating four different, full-fledged Departments (English Studies, English Linguistics, English Applied Linguistics, and American Studies) and the Centre for English Teacher Training. Today it is the largest single School within Eötvös Loránd University: with roughly 1,500 students and about 125 faculty members it is bigger than the Law School (which, for historical reasons, is an independent faculty). Located, since 1990, on the spacious premises at Ajtósi Dürer sor, the School is today the largest centre for English and American studies in Hungary and, probably, in East-Central Europe.

The strength of the School is its diversity, with special emphasis on the comparative study of English literature, British studies, phonology, syntax, historical linguistics, English as a foreign language, English teacher training, and American studies. Besides, the School boasts of covering areas such as Australian, Canadian, Irish, and English Medieval studies, very special programs in the country. The School has built up five distinct Ph.D. programs which are very popular: Renaissance literature, modern English and American literature and culture, American studies, language pedagogy, as well as English linguistics.

Visiting faculty regularly include experts from Britain, the United States, Canada, and Australia, some of them international celebrities such as Stanley Cavell of Harvard, Charles Altieri of Berkeley, Michael Kenstowicz and David Pesetsky of M.I.T., Edna and Michael Longley of Belfast, Rob Kroes of Amsterdam, Marianne Celce-Murcia of UCLA, George Szirtes of Norwich, the feminist Betty Friedan, or the poet William J. Smith. We have a whole number of distinguished resident scholars from all the English-speaking countries, particularly the regular contingent of Fulbright and British Council visiting faculty. The School boasts of the Otto Salgo Visiting Professorship in American Studies, founded by Nicolas Salgo, a former U.S. ambassador to Budapest, in 1984. The British Council has been particularly supportive of our British Studies program, the Centre for English Teacher Training, and the Ph.D. Program in Language Pedagogy, generously providing human and material resources and expertise in all these areas.

Currently the School has a library of altogether 90,000 volumes, a computer facility for some 50 students at any one time, and a well-equipped audio-visual centre. Governmental as well as non-governmental agencies have been supporting our library with various donations, including the Governments of Australia and Canada, the (former) USIA, the Mellon Foundation, the Fulbright Commission, and the Salgo-Noren Foundation.

We have built up several programmes for our students to travel to English-speaking countries. The British Council, the Coca-Cola Company, the Fulbright Program, the Kellner Foundation, the Soros Foundation, as well as the Hungarian government have given valuable assistance to many of our undergraduate students to go to Britain, the United States, Canada, and Australia. The Socrates Program has also been instrumental in allowing our students to study in Finland, Germany and the Netherlands; a number of other universities in countries such as Austria, France, and Greece are contemplating joining us in partnerships in the near future. Our own students increasingly include people from all over Europe and the United States.

The faculty of the School includes seven full professors and 21 associate professors, whose publications cover a very impressive range from the comparative history of genres, Shakespeare-studies, post-modern literature, metaphors, phonology, language history, syntax, U.S. foreign policy, Hungarian emigration to the United States, British and American historical contacts with Hungary and East-Central Europe and, last but not least, teaching English as a foreign language. Several major bilingual dictionaries have been edited by members of our faculty. Some of our faculty members have been internationally recognised through major scholarships, invitations to teach at U.S. universities and other foreign institutions, membership of international learned societies and editorial boards, distinguished awards, honoris causa doctorates.

Why and whither English and American studies? What do we stand for?

We think that English is a subject which has both practical and theoretical purposes. English and American studies allow our students a deep insight into the values, thought, and achievement of the English-speaking peoples, one (or, for that matter, increasingly so, several) of the great civilisations in human history. English and American studies give access to the understanding of how democracy has been evolving through the centuries.

English as a language and a culture has great integrating powers: it cements an edifice of understanding in a world of conflict and clash, dissonance and discord. English is a basic field of study in an integrating world which needs a common language of co-operation, interaction, and communication. It helps upholding the lofty principles of humanistic studies and philologically rooted scholarship in an age of technological change and mechanical ideals. English is the source and field of theory today in the realm of humanities, offering a conceptual framework for discourse and debate. English and American studies pave the way for small national cultures striving to get connected with the great world. We need teachers, translators, interpreters of English in a country where the native tongue is still prevailing in isolation.

Accordingly, the School of English and American Studies provides undergraduate and postgraduate training for a broad range of professionals connected in some way with English. We offer courses and conduct research in the literature, history, cultural and area studies of the English-speaking peoples, as well as in English linguistics, applied linguistics, and language pedagogy. We prepare our students for a wide variety of fields and careers providing M.A. degrees in English Language and Literature, as well as in American Studies, and a B.Ed. in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Ph.D. degrees are offered in English and American Literature and Culture, English Linguistics, Language Pedagogy, and American Studies.

The School of English and American Studies of Eötvös Loránd University has been coping with the conflicting tendencies of steadily growing numbers and efforts to preserve the rich tradition of excellence. We hope that, in the long run, we shall be able to maintain pursuing quality education at an international level. To achieve that, we need young faculty members in every discipline, we need incomparably better finances, we need a lot more international scholarships and internships for our students, we need a much bigger library and resource centre, we need a well-functioning e-mail system to connect our students with the world 24-hours-a-day, we need lecture rooms of a standard fit for the 21st century, we need dynamic expansion that suits an incomparably popular and useful area of studies. It is imperative that the School, as part of the largest university in Hungary, should be developed at a level warranted by its venerable heritage, century-old standards, and internationally acclaimed professional role in both Hungary and in Europe. We urge this to happen. We work for this to happen.

About the Department

The Department of English Applied Linguistics aims to equip future professionals of the English language with the appropriate language proficiency, language and cultural awareness as well as the methodological skills and applied linguistic knowledge required to become a teacher of English as a foreign language. We provide advanced courses in English language development, English teaching methodology and applied linguistics to English major students. We also carry out research in various areas of language pedagogy with the aim of recycling the results of these into training teachers and students of humanities. Apart from catering for the needs of the majority of our student population working towards their first degree, we also run in-service teacher training courses and - in co-operation with the Centre for English Teacher Training - a Ph.D. programme in language pedagogy.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH LINGUISTICS (DELG)

Head of Department: Ádám Nádasdy, Ph.D., associate professor

Department Secretary: Mária Hanzséros

Departmental Office: 220/a

About the Department

Tuition and research at this department focuses on the English Language. The courses this department offers are required in all the M.A. programmes at SEAS. Since September 1995, DELG has had its own Ph.D. programme. The main subfields of linguistics DELG concentrates on are phonology, syntax and historical linguistics. The M.A. courses offered by DELG are linguistics courses as opposed to practical grammar courses. The courses are basically of two types: survey-type introductory and core courses which are given every academic year and consist of Introduction to English Linguistics, English Phonetics and Phonology, Phrasal Syntax, Clausal Syntax, and History of English; and elective courses of varying content.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH STUDIES (DES)

Head of Department: István Géher, Ph.D., associate professor

Deputy Head of Department: Géza Kállay, Ph.D., associate professor

Department Secretary: Éva Borka

Departmental Office: 219

About the Department

The Department of English Studies offers courses of lectures and seminars to meet an extensive range of interest. In the main tier it provides an introductory course to literary studies, which is followed by survey courses in Drama, Fiction and Poetry, all complemented by follow-up seminars and a two-semester course in History. In the specialisation tier the courses offered by the Department cover two main fields, English Literature and British Studies. Special programmes in Australian, British, Irish and Medieval Studies are also available now to which instructors contribute from several departments of the School. The number of students permitted to register for a particular class may be restricted by the availability of teaching resources. The Department has two Ph.D. programmes, (English Renaissance and Baroque; Modern English and American Literature); the number of scholarships available, however, is painfully limited.

About the Department

The Centre for English Teacher Training (CETT-ELTE) was established in 1990, in response to the increased demand for qualified English Teachers which followed radical changes in national education policy in the late 1980's. The department now runs a three-year "fast-track" programme leading to the B.Ed. in English Language Teaching. CETT-ELTE staff also conduct research into various aspects of pre-service and in-service teacher development and organise and implement a variety of in-service training programmes for qualified teachers. The department has achieved an international reputation in the field of Language Teacher Education.

STUDY PROGRAMMES

 

These programmes do not lead to a degree in themselves, but offer specialisation in some area connected to the study of English and English-speaking cultures. Students may choose to cover a programme in its entirety in which case they get a Programme Certificate attached to their M.A. degree, but are also welcome to select some of its courses only.

 

Australian Studies Programme

Programme co-ordinator: Dorottya Holló Ph.D., associate professor

Office: Room 330/b

e-mail: hollod@ludens.elte.hu

home page: http://isis.elte.hu/department/asp/default.htm

The Australian Studies Programme of the School of English and American Studies offers courses in literature, history, civilisation, and combines some of these with academic language practice as well. As this is an elective programme, the students are awarded a special certificate on completing six credit courses. This programme intends to offer students an insight into another facet of English speaking cultures. Discovering the realities and the various literary interpretations of multiculturalism, nation formation, racial and gender issues in the Australian context creates a scope for comparative cultural studies, which enables students to raise their awareness of social issues. We offer thesis consultation for those students who wish to do individual research in Australian Studies. As most of our students become teachers or work for the media or other public spheres, we hope that our efforts to develop culturally aware, open-minded, tolerant and accepting people are multiplied through their work.

 

British Studies Programme

Programme co-ordinators: Győző Ferencz, Ph.D., associate professor; Miklós Lojkó, M.Phil., assistant lecturer

e-mail: fergy@ludens.elte.hu, lojkonetid@ludens.elte.hu

The British Studies specialisation programme is offered to students majoring in English who wish to carry on an in-depth, as well as more extensive, study of multifaceted contemporary British culture and its linguistic, regional, political and artistic representations. The aim of the programme is to develop a heightened awareness and a critical and comparative understanding of British culture and related cultures-in-English. The programme offers a multidisciplinary approach: within the British Studies framework students can explore contemporary literature, the arts (including film or the media) and British politics complemented by their historical background as well as a context of cultural theory. To obtain the Programme Certificate, students must (1) complete successfully six study units selected freely from among the courses offered; (2) take three courses in addition to courses required for their general degree in English; and (3) write their degree thesis in one of the areas within the programme.

 

Canadian and Québec Studies Programme

Programme co-ordinator: Anna Jakabfi, Ph.D., associate professor

e-mail: jakabfi@ludens.elte.hu

home page: http://www.btk.elte.hu/~seas/can/canalap.htm

This is an independent programme, meaning that students enrolled at any Hungarian university can take up the courses as either individual courses and/or as a cluster of credit courses to obtain a certificate added to the M.A. degree of the applicant, or can be taken individually as special courses for future teachers of English. The conditions to fulfil are: (1) to cover at least six of the courses offered, (2) to take an elementary level French language exam or give proof of basic knowledge of French if the courses have been completed exclusively in English. Those wishing to write their M.A. thesis on a Canadian or Québec Studies topic can do so, and instructors are ready to offer any assistance including special thesis seminars and advisory work.

 

English Medieval Studies Programme

Programme co-ordinators: Katalin Halácsy, Ph.D., associate professor; Veronika Kniezsa, Ph.D., associate professor

e-mail: halacsy@ludens.elte.hu, kniezsa@ludens.elte.hu

This is an interdisciplinary programme about medieval English with a broad outlook on the Continent, too. Courses are advertised in English literature, linguistics and history, and participants can specialise in any of these fields, covering only the basics in the others. There is a requirement of one course in one other medieval European language or literature beside English, and at least one course in Latin, and participants are also invited to broaden their knowledge in the history of art and culture. This is an in-degree programme restricted to students of English.

 

Irish Literary and Cultural Studies Programme

Programme co-ordinator: Ferenc Takács, Ph.D., associate professor

e-mail: takfr@ludens.elte.hu

The Irish Studies Specialisation Programme is available for English Language and Literature majors entering the specialisation tier of their studies. The programme offers a range of courses covering the culture, literature, history and politics of Ireland. Emphasis is proportionally accorded to the Celtic heritage, the Anglo-Irish cultural and literary tradition, the Irish contribution to the literature of High Modernism, contemporary Irish writing, the history of modern Ireland and the political history of contemporary Ireland (both North and South of the border). To obtain the programme certificate, students must complete six courses selected from the range of Irish Studies courses offered (three of these courses must be in addition to the course requirements of their general degree course in English), write their thesis on a topic or area of study that comes under the umbrella of Irish Studies, and take their final oral examination in Irish Studies ("Topic 73").

Programme description The Ph.D. programme in Language Pedagogy at ELTE has been administered jointly by the Department of English Applied Linguistics and the Centre for English Teacher Training since 1996. Developed and maintained with the financial and academic support of the British Council, the programme is intended to cover a range of research areas within language pedagogy and applied linguistics, but its purpose is not to provide language teachers with further education in methodology, although the obtained knowledge will naturally have practical implications. The programme is not intended for English graduates only, but the language of instruction is English.

During the programme, the participants must obtain 16 study units consisting of taught courses, research seminars and individual consultations, each worth one unit. It is a set requirement in each seminar for the students to hand in an extensive research paper, and they also have to produce at least two internationally publishable/published papers before concluding their studies. On completing the coursework, which takes approximately three years, the participants take a comprehensive (oral) examination, write and submit their dissertation, which they defend at a public examination.

Subjects taught Focus on the Language Learner and Learner Language, Focus on the Teacher: An Overview, Research Design and Statistics Seminar, Individual Differences in Second Language Learning, Training the Trainer, The Age Factor, Discourse Analysis, Research Models in the Analysis of Written Discourse and Translation, Teaching Culture Through Language, Understanding the Intercultural Experience, Vocabulary Acquisition, Researching Language Classrooms, English for Specific Purposes, Curriculum Design Course, Language Test Construction and Evaluation, Language Test Validation, Pragmatics.

Instructors Péter Medgyes, Dorottya Holló, Anita Csölle, Pál Heltai, Krisztina Károly, Edit H. Kontra, Judit Kormos, Uwe Pohl, Marianne Nikolov. Visiting professors from Lancaster University: Charles Alderson, Dick Allwright, Keith Johnson, Geoffrey Leech, Greg Myers, Jane Sunderland.

Scholarships The British Council supports the programme by providing scholarships for students to do research at Lancaster University.

Admission requirements A university degree (M.A. equivalent) in Language Pedagogy or a related field, of classes "good" or "excellent" (i.e. grades 4 and 5), a completed M.A. thesis in Language Pedagogy of classes "good" or `excellent", or a 15-page essay on a self-selected topic related to Language Pedagogy. Sufficient proficiency in academic English. A minimum of four years" intensive language teaching experience. A successful oral examination. The programme accepts 6-9 students a year.

Programme Description This subdivision of the doctoral programme in English and American Literature and Culture is intended for graduates who hold an M.A. degree and wish to broaden their knowledge of modern English and American literature and its antecedents and to obtain a doctorate in either of these fields. On meeting the course requirements students receive a final certificate, which is a prerequisite for the comprehensive examination and for the submission as well as defence of the doctoral dissertation. Successful completion of the full programme will lead to a Ph.D. The taught courses of the programme are expected to be completed within a time-span of 6 to 8 semesters. The dissertation should be submitted not later than the 12th semester.

A project proposal, with the working title of the dissertation, must be submitted on application. The topic of the dissertation is approved and a supervisor appointed by the Programme Council by the end of the fourth week of the first semester, in consultation with the student concerned. Responsibilities of the supervisor include guidance of his/her students in research, writing and other professional matters.

The Doctoral Code requires students to earn 16 credits. Of these, 8 are obligatory and 8 elective. Students are advised to draw up a three-year Plan of Studies from the English or American as well as the joint English/American courses listed in the Curriculum. The proportion of English and American courses is determined in consideration of the topic of the dissertation. More detailed information is provided in the Curriculum available in the Department of English Studies.

Subjects taught The taught courses centre around modernity, Modernism and Postmodernism, both as systems of value and creative principles; in addition, the relationship between Modernism and Romanticism, anticipations of European Modernism in American Romanticism, the history of criticism, questions of reception and Hungarian translation are also studied. The following authors come in for in-depth study: (1) English literature: T. Hardy, W. Pater, A. Symons, W. B. Yeats, O. Wilde, H. James, J. Conrad, J. Joyce, V. Woolf, T. S. Eliot as well as such representatives of Romanticism as Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley and Keats; (2) American literature: W. C. Williams, W. Stevens, E. O'Neill, A. Miller, T. Williams, W. Faulkner as well as such representatives of the American Renaissance as R. W. Emerson, N. Hawthorne, E. A. Poe, H. Melville and W. Whitman.

Instructors Aladár Sarbu, Péter Dávidházi, Péter Egri, Győző Ferencz, István Géher, Ágnes Gergely, Géza Kállay, Ágnes Péter, Ferenc Takács.

Admission requirements Applicants must take an oral admission examination in English or American literature, criticism and theory of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and must also demonstrate some familiarity with literary studies in general. There is no written entrance examination.

The examination material comprises and somewhat exceeds the M.A. requirements of Eötvös Loránd University, but it is for the applicant to choose, in accordance with his/her field of interest, the area where his/her knowledge extends beyond the M.A. level. For more information consult the Curriculum of the English and American Literature subdivision of the Doctoral Programme.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

 

General Academic Obligations

Students attending degree courses at the School of English and American Studies are to obtain the following general education study units:

a) Philosophy, rhetoric and computer skills requirements ("FRSZ", 3 study units)

- one study unit advertised by the Division of Philosophy as a general education unit;

- one rhetoric or communication skills related study unit advertised by the Division of Hungarian Linguistics as a general education unit;

- one study unit advertised as a general education unit by the faculty's Centre for Information and Education Technology. Alternatively, this study unit can also be obtained with an examination that confirms the possession of the required skills.

It is mandatory for all students to obtain these study units, unless they are the graduates of a faculty of humanities. The formerly obtained study units in philosophy and social science ("TTF") are equivalent to the philosophy, rhetoric and information technology ("FRSZ") study units.

b) General education (14 study units)

This can be covered with any unit having a different code from the student's degree course code (but not those that start with "Y", or the modern foreign language units). Some of the teacher training ("TK") units and PE are also accepted as general education units.

It is mandatory for all single-major students taking their first university degree to fulfil this obligation, as well as for those supplementary degree students who are single-major college graduates.

This obligation is not mandatory for B.Ed. students studying for a language teacher's degree, for double major students, for students simultaneously attending a degree course at a different university, for students who already possess a university degree, and for those supplementary degree students who are double-major college graduates.

c) Modern foreign languages

According to faculty regulations, before the issuing of the final certificate students are to certify that they possess one basic and one intermediate-level language certificate (Type C in Hungarian terminology). Students attending degree courses offered by SEAS are to produce only one basic-level language certificate in a foreign language other than English.

 

 

Registration for Seminars and Practicals

The School of English and American Studies organises an orientation day for first-year students at the beginning of each academic year during the week before the autumn semester commences. The orientation is usually scheduled for the Thursday of the week and attendance is strongly recommended.

 

 

Distribution of Queue Numbers

The order of registration for courses at SEAS is established with the help of queue numbers. These numbers are distributed by the members of the English Majors' Representation ("SZHÉK") and can be obtained during the week before a semester begins (check the university notice boards for the exact date). To acquire a queue number, a grade book is to be produced, for which one queue number will be issued. The person soliciting a queue number need not be identical with the owner of the credit book. The order in which the queue numbers are issued is fixed (check the university notice boards for the exact hours).

Pre-registration

Seminars can only take a limited number of students, so those who wish to ensure their place in a certain seminar are recommended to obtain a queue number and attend the pre-registration. The pre-registration is held on the first day (a Monday) of each semester and follows a fixed schedule that is displayed on the university notice boards. As a regular procedure, students have their names put down for the selected seminar in the order determined by their queue numbers.

Students confirm their intention to participate in a seminar by attending the first class. Those students who arrive more than 15 minutes late for the first class risk losing the place they have signed up for, since the instructor may admit others in their place.

Computer and Media Facilities

The ADs campus has two computer labs with word processing, printing, e-mailing and web surfing facilities (rooms 123 and 338). In order to apply for an e-mail address, you have to fill in a form which you can acquire from the lab attendant in room 213. Hand in your application as soon as possible, since the allocation of an e-mail account and the issuing of an address usually takes more than two weeks. Once you have your account and e-mail address, you have to pay a fee each semester if you wish to use the labs.

Computer Room, Building A, Room 213: 18 DECpc 486dx33, 2 Macintosh, 1 HP4M+,

Computer Room, Building A, Room 338: 13 DECpc 486dx33, 1 HP4M+

Self-Access Centre B/27: 4 IBM 486sx, 1 HP III Si, audio video system

All computers can handle both double density and high density 3.5" and 5.25" diskettes. CD-ROM, multimedia, and laser printer support is available in each facility. All computers are hooked up to ELTE network running TCP/IP, which provides central computing services such as Telnet, FTP, Gopher, Web, and different library accesses (Melvyl etc.).

 

The SEAS Library

The Library of the School of English and American Studies is a collection of approximately 70,000 documents. Its basic aim is to provide access to information and information services in a timely, useful and effective manner, and to support the teaching, learning and research functions of the students and staff of the School. We collect books on English, American, Canadian, Australian studies, civilisation, language, linguistics and language pedagogy. There are 140 workplaces available in the Reading Room.

Catalogues:

Our online catalogue is called ‘Horizon’ and is available on terminals within the Library and terminals on the Campus. The online catalogue contains bibliographic and item data about books processed since February 1998, and mostly bibliographic details only about books purchased earlier. The card catalogue is still available, which describes the books acquired by the library before February 1998. Serials are not yet listed in the catalogue. There is a separate catalogue of photocopies reserved by the teachers (Xerox copies, articles from books or journals).

Location of the Books:

The books are arranged according to the Library of Congress call numbers throughout the library. Library maps and the guide to the catalogue help find the exact locations of items according to numbers and prefixes. All fiction, university notes, thesis papers are located in closed stacks.

Location of the Serials:

Journals, magazines, newspapers, and periodicals are displayed on the newspaper stand and on separate shelves. We handle academic serials separately. None of them are available for borrowing.

Borrowing:

SEAS Library is available for the students and staff of the School who may borrow up to 7 books for 4 weeks, 4 cassettes for one week, and 3 reference materials (including the photocopies) for one night. Audio-cassettes can be borrowed for a week for HUF 50 each. Most books are available for loan. The books which are marked on the spine with a golden tape may not be borrowed. These include all valuable books, reference books, thesis papers and journals.

Students are issued with a student card after enrolment in their first year of study. Re-enrolling students will not receive a new card, but the card must be revalidated every September. The Library started to use its online circulation system in the 1998/1999 academic year.

Closed Reserve Material:

Closed Reserve is a collection of library material that is heavily used, particularly in a certain period of time or whole semester and consists mainly of books that have been set as recommended reading by lecturers, or copies of journal articles and lecturers’ copies of books or folders. The books are marked with a golden band on their spines, and the photocopies have “Overnight” written on them. These items are kept in-house during the regular opening hours, but they are available for a night, and may be checked out an hour before closing, except for those strictly reserved copies by the lecturers (non-circulating items).

 

Library Services

Videos: Three self-access video players in the reading-room and a video room are available for watching video films from the Library’s collection for a fee.

Photocopying: A self-service copy machine, operated with coins, is available for students of English to copy from the Library's collection only. It is strictly prohibited to make copies from thesis papers!

 

Inter-Library Loan: There is a special service for staff and also for students preparing their essays, thesis papers, etc. Books that are not available in SEAS Library can be borrowed from any Hungarian or foreign library via this service. Please note that it is free of charge to ask items from Hungarian libraries, but the ILL from abroad is fee-based.

CD-ROM/Multimedia: SEAS Library is building a collection of CD databases and multimedia CDs. The CD-ROMs we have in the library are either bibliographic databases such as the Library of Congress CDMARC Bibliography, MLA Bibliography, NPA (National Periodical Database of Foreign Journals), or multimedia encyclopaedias, thesauruses, and dictionaries which give easy access to large amount of data. They can be accessed on our CD-ROM network both in the library and the computer rooms. The public terminals in the library are not for word-processing or using the Internet. Please visit one of the computer rooms in the main building on the campus for these facilities. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact library staff. For general enquiries call: 343-0148/ext. 4335 or 4334, or write us via e-mail: seaslib@ludens.elte.hu

Hungarian - English Glossary
of Academic Terms

Compiled by Ádám Nádasdy

 

Introduction

The aim of the glossary is to ensure that the students, faculty and those who work in the administration of ELTE (especially those of the Faculty of Humanities) will render the Hungarian academic terminology consistently and unequivocally in their English language correspondence, publications and translations. Therefore the glossary also serves as a lists of recommended translation equivalents, and offers a British English or European translation first. The equivalents provided in square brackets are also correct, but the use of synonyms is to be avoided so that a Hungarian term will be consistently translated with the same English term. The glossary does not aim to provide for the Hungarian terms all the possible English equivalents, which vary from country to country.

The translations are, as a matter of course, only valid with regard to university studies (and occasionally only in the case of the Faculty of Humanities).

CAMPUS AND FLOOR MAPS

 

 

 

 

Getting to the Campus

The ADs campus can be approached from several directions. Trolley buses 75 and 74 stop close to the main gate. Bus 7 running on Thököly street is also an option: to get to the campus get off at Stefánia St. and walk down Zichy Géza street.
