The educational portfolio of the Department 

Our Department is responsible for the MA-level Teacher of Economics training at the university and the Vocational Technical Instructor (BA) and Community Coordination (BA) Program. 

There are two branches in the Teacher of Economics training at the university: Tourism-Catering and Commerce and Marketing. The Department is responsible for organising the entrance examinations for the teacher training courses, teaching the theoretical and practical pedagogical-psychological subjects that are part of teacher training, organising, and managing the teaching practice in the final semester, and organising and conducting the final examinations. The Teacher of Economics Programme is currently a 4-semester correspondence course, open to BSc or MSc level economics or a Vocational Instruction in Business (BA) graduates. For those who have obtained a college-level teacher qualification in previous decades, the training period is 3-semesters. The aim of the programme is to deepen the professional theoretical and methodological knowledge acquired in the framework of the undergraduate programme in economics, as well as to prepare students for teaching economics, courses and modules related to their specialisation and solving pedagogical and psychological tasks related to teaching. 

The duration of the part-time Vocational Technical Instructor BA programme is 6-semesters. Candidates with a vocational secondary school diploma or a certificate issued under the framework of the National Qualifications Register in commerce or tourism and catering and at least 2 years' professional experience corresponding to their qualification may be admitted to this course. The aim of the training is to train business teachers who are prepared to teach, organise, conduct, and manage related professional sessions in regular and non-regular vocational education and training in the relevant specialisation in the field of commerce or catering and tourism, in accordance with the National Qualifications Register, and to meet the competence requirements of teachers and to continue their studies in a master’s degree course.

The Community Coordination degree programme lasts 6 semesters, both full-time and part-time. The two specialisations are Cultural Community Coordination and Human Development. Admission requirements are a school-leaving certificate with the examination of at least one of the following high school subjects taken at an advanced level: biology, Hungarian language and literature, mathematics, social studies, history, a foreign language (English, French, German, Russian). The aim of the BA program is to train community coordinators and community development professionals performing cultural, human, community-based social and economic organisational work, who are able to manage cultural, religious, civil, entrepreneurial and non-profit organisations, state or municipal institutions, integrated, multifunctional organisations, institutions, and who are able to organise the provision of public services at local and community level in connection with the development of the social and economic situation of culture, youth and adult education, and to manage these services at specific levels of institutions. 

In parallel with teacher training, the Department is responsible for teaching psychology, sociology, learning methodology (in Hungarian and English) and research methodology, career development, business ethics, business etiquette and protocol in the undergraduate programmes of Tourism and Catering, and Commerce and Marketing.

Community culture and building 

It is in society's interest that communities are able to recognise their own values and exploit the opportunities that this creates. Community coordination and community organisers, among others, play a major role in this. Research in the Department focuses on the role of local heritage and cultural heritage sites in community culture and community building, and the knowledge-sharing opportunities and forms that these communities take.

  • National Cultural Institute 

 

Digital education 

The emergence of digital education constitutes perhaps the greatest educational reform in the 21st century, and it is being introduced to a greater or lesser extent at all levels of education. It is the task of educators and teachers to integrate the opportunities offered by technology into the teaching process in order to increase the effectiveness of the teaching-learning process. Research in this field focuses on the motivations of Generation Y and Generation Z, on methodological innovations and on the potential for their application. The study of this topic offers new research directions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
