Hungarian Language at Indiana University
The Hungarian language program at the Central Eurasian Studies Department (CEUS) gives students a great opportunity to get acquainted with a unique European language that belongs to the Finno-Ugric language group.
Hungarian language study in CEUS
During every academic year we offer three levels of language teaching (two semesters each of Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced with small class sizes and highly qualified native-speaker teachers who enjoy teaching very much. In class we focus on the four language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening, while also taking into consideration the cultural aspects of the language. Summer intensive language instruction is also available for the first year of study through SWSEEL.

For those who become more intrigued by this unique language and culture CEUS offers an undergraduate minor. Our courses in Hungarian history, literature, and culture are part of the Hungarian Studies Program, the only graduate program in the USA where it is possible to earn an MA and a PhD in Hungarian Studies. Most of these courses are also available to undergraduates.
