1. Hungarian language and culture (administratively subsumed under “Finno-Ugrian language studies” from 1999 on, but with independently planned instruction). Our Hungarian Studies program provides theoretical and practical knowledge, including intensive language teaching in the first year, after which students can apply for language courses in Hungary. The instructions of the courses are in Finnish. 2. Finnic languages with a special emphasis on the closest relatives of the Finnish language (Karelian, Vepsian, Ingrian, Votian, Estonian, Livonian). This track constitutes a fruitful comparative research that is also essential for a better knowledge of the history of the Finnish language. 3. Estonian language and culture. This alternative to general Finnic studies, officially created in 1994, has enjoyed an increasing popularity. A basic course in Estonian language is obligatory for all students of Finnish. 4. Finno-Ugrian language studies: comprises both traditional comparative Finno-Ugristics and other research of the Uralic languages (more distantly related to Finnish). 5. Sámi Studies (an interdisciplinary unit, coordinated by the Lecturer of Sámi).
All these tracks can be pursued further by students in the Masters Program, and they can also form the basis of a PhD research. More information about our current PhD researchers is available (in Finnish) here. More information about PhD application process is available here.

- A new Finnish-Hungarian dictionary is a project that aims at creating a modern medium-sized dictionary with approximately 40 000 entries. The general editors of the dictionary are Ulla-Maija Kulonen and Magdolna Kovács. Two Hungarian-Finnish working teams, Ildikó Vecsernyés and Kaija Markus, and Ottilia Kovács and Sanna Manner, are engaged in the project, supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation for two years and the Alfred Kordelin Foundation for one year. At the moment, approximately 30 000 entries have been compiled.
- Literary reception and translations in Hungary, Finland and Slovakia is an inter-university programme that has developed from Éva Gerevich-Kopteff’s doctoral thesis. The aim of the project is to study the literary contexts of the two countries outside the Indo-European group of languages and to develop a profile for the teaching of literary studies, as well as for the supervision of basic and further research.
- Ildikó Vecsernyés participates in an EU-Grundtvig project, which focuses on courses for Hungarian language teachers of adult education. Our partners are the University of Hamburg and the Hungarian Balassi Institute.

Both have their journals: “Acta Hungarica” is the journal of the Hungarological Institute, while “Proceedings of the Transcarpathian Hungarian Scientific Society” (“A KMTT Közleményei”) is that of the THSS. Both journals are only partly Hungarian. Most of the articles issued in “Acta Hungarica” are written in Russian or Ukrainian.
