Institute of Psychology
   

Introduction

ELTE Institute of Psychology is a distinguished flagship institution for training psychologists in Hungary, as well as providing the psychological components for the teacher training programme at the biggest teacher training University in the country.

In addition to the Bachelor’s progammes, ELTE Institute of Psychology provides specialized postgraduate continuing education programmes and PhD programmes with rights for habilitation. The number of students in teacher’s programmes at ELTE are up to the thousands and their preparation for professional life by the experts of ELTE creates an opportunity as well as an obligation for them to keep in contact with the practical fields of education. This latter explains why we have the greatest tradition for training professionals on a postgraduate level in Educational Psychology, School Psychology and Counseling Psychology, as well as having these specializations institutionalized here.

The emergence of the differentiated forms of student counseling that has been established at ELTE first in the country, is a professional development tied to the Institute. On one hand it has provided services to the entire University, on the other hand it has been an area for gaining experience in the field and applying counseling psychology in a specific way. The groundbreaking theoretical work that our associates have been exerting in order to lay the foundations and institutionalize the field of Health Psychology is part of the intellectual identity of the Institute. Last, but not least, after the historical-political changes, the renewed interest of students in relation to market economy has lead to a heightened importance of Organizational Psychology, Economic Psychology, Political Psychology and Human Resource Management. These fields are open to social issues, aspiring to translate scientific results into practice and have an ever increasing role in the training of psychologists on all levels. 

It is part of the history of ELTE Institute of Psychology that its predecessors are responsible for preserving the continuity of the academic cultivation of psychology.

The number of the teaching and research staff exceeds a hundred, while the students of the Institute are over 1500.

We have more than 30 ongoing research and development projects and we cultivate extensive international connections. In the last ten years the Institute has hosted international events for nearly all sub-disciplines as well as the European Meeting of Psychologists. Our associates play a leading role in international professional organizations.The Institute also has a programme in English. Its high level of professional standards and good reputation reflect the fact that ELTE’s Master’s programme stands the test of all international comparisons. The integration in higher education brings new challenges and opportunities. In this multi-level programme, there are opportunities for new ways of cooperating with the pedagogical and especially the special educational fields, so the integrated ELTE allows a broad leeway for the practitioners of psychology by its wide ranging activities and involvement in the teacher training proELTE Institute of Psychology is a distinguished flagship institution for training psychologists in Hungary, as well as providing the psychological components for the teacher training programme at the biggest teacher training University in the country.
