Hungarian is the official language of Hungary and one of the 24 official languages of the European Union. Outside Hungary it is also spoken by communities of Hungarian people in neighboring countries—especially in Romania, Slovakia, Serbia and Ukraine, and by Hungarian diaspora communities worldwide. Like Finnish and Estonian, it belongs to the Uralic language family, with its closest relatives being Mansi and Khanty(Ostyak). It is one of the few languages of Europe that are not part of the Indo-European family.
Hungarian is one of the languages available for the CEUS undergraduate major. Tracks with two or three years of language study are available. The Inner Asian & Uralic National Resource Center also provides many resources for your learning & engagement.
Fulfill your foreign language requirement in a small class with dedicated teachers. You can also receive a CEUS minor with two years of Hungarian language study and a related culture course.
