Overview

Short description
The Portuguese MA-instruction program goes deeply into the majors studied during the BA-period. In this program students study literary and linguistic theory, medieval literature, literature of the 19th century and the modern age of Portugal and Brazil, focusing on the work of the most distinguished authors. In linguistics, the studies of history of language are followed by courses of lexicology, morphology and syntax. Further courses are offered on the translation of scientific texts and on how to compose scientific studies and essays in Portuguese.

Our graduates finish the program with a high level of Portuguese knowledge. Many of them work as language teachers in public schools or language schools, as editors or literary translators, others find positions in the tourism industry, media and marketing, at governmental institutions or ministries, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Foreign Trade, and at international companies.

Strength of program
The aim of this Portuguese MA-program is to instruct specialists in Portuguese linguistics, literature who would like to realize a scientific career in a high level in the future and prepare the to the PhD studies. This way the professors and lecturers of the course keep an special eye on the developing of the students, who can study one semester in a Portuguese University (in the Erasmus mobility) and can study with the “visiting professors” who give lectures at the Department of Portuguese Language and Literature.

This program prepares specialists in Portuguese linguistics or literature for their academic or non-academic career. Students have the possibility to study one semester at an Erasmus+ partner university in Portugal and they regularly meet visiting professors. The department has close contact with the Embassy of Portugal and the Brazilian Embassy in Budapest, too.
