What is the HCA?
The Hungarian Cultural Association is a student-run organization at
Indiana University. The HCA organizes programs and events for students of
the Hungarian language and Hungarian Studies. Our group is comprised of
both Americans and Hungarians alike, and our membership includes
undergraduates, grad students, and community members.
Indiana University offers a graduate degree program in Hungarian Studies
within the Department of Central
Eurasian Studies(CEUS). The Russian and East
European Institute(REEI) also provides credit for courses taken within
CEUS. The department now also offers an undergraduate minor and is working to develop
an undergraduate major.
A few examples of our activities include: weekly "coffee hour" for
Hungarian-language conversation, screening of Hungarian films, and guest
lectures by notable Hungarian scholars. Additionally, the HCA sponsors
receptions each semester in commemoration of the important historical
events of Oct. 23rd and March 15th. Students and other interested
community members are welcome to participate in any HCA event. A complete
listing of our event schedule can be found within this web site.
