Program description:
Catedra de Filologie Română a fost fondată în anul 1863. Era prima catedră de limba și literatura română în Europa, înființată în afara României. Catedra are mai multe contracte de colaborare cu universitățiile (Erasmus cu Universitatea din Oradea, Universitatea București, Universitatea Babeș-Bolyai) și instituțiile academice (Institul de Istorie George Barițiu) din România. Diplomele obținute la catedra noastră, pe baza regulamentelor europene și a acordurilor bilaterale româno-maghiare sunt recunoscute și în România.
Cei care termină specialitatea pot să meargă mai departe la masterat, sau să se angaje. Iată câteva exemple unde lucrează unii care au terminat la noi: edituri, publicistică, ministerul afacerilor externe, relații culturale, autoguvernări, administrația de stat, turism etc.

The main goal of the program is to ensure good knowledge of the Romanian language and literature. This MA level provides for a thorough training in order for students to be able to work towards a PhD level. The program also focuses on practical training so that those who graduate will have a chance to engage in the competitive sphere of the labour market (translator, editor, publisher, etc.). Note that the program does not offer teaching qualifications.

The aim of this course is to train high-level specialists capable of meeting the specific demands of the labour market in the fields of cultural and intercultural exchange. In addition to local, national or international authorities in the public sector, it is important to underline the growing need for Romanian graduates in the private sector, e.g. with multinational companies.

The training will also prepare student to continue in one of the Doctoral Schools of the Faculty.
Our graduates find employment mainly in the sectors of education and research, tourism management, banking and finance, and intercultural communications.
