University of Groningen
Faculty of Arts 
The Faculty of Arts is a large dynamic faculty in the heart of the city of
Groningen. Over 5000 students and 700 members of staff are working at the
frontiers of knowledge every day. With 19 Bachelor’s degree programmes and
more than 35 Master’s degree programmes, the faculty focuses on the study of
the languages, cultures and history of Europe, the Mediterranean area and
the North American continent. Special attention is paid to the language,
culture and history of The Netherlands and particularly the Northern
Netherlands region. The faculty organizes a large number of
interdisciplinary programmes. Research at the Faculty of Arts is highly
regarded in the various academic fields.

The Department Finno-Ugric Languages and Cultures
This department holds a unique position in The Netherlands: the University
of Groningen is the only university in the Dutch-speaking world to offer
this program. The BA in Finno-Ugric Languages and Cultures has three
specializations: Finnish Language and Culture, Hungarian Language and
Culture and Finno-Ugric Linguistics. Because of the political developments
in Finland and Hungary during the last decades, in particular due to their
membership of the EU, public interest in our department has been increasing.
The genetic linguistic affinity between Finnish and Hungarian forms the
natural connection between Finland and Hungary, and also explains the rather
prominent place of descriptive, historical linguistics in our program.
Today, we focus on the language and culture of Estonia as well. The
department Finno-Ugric Languages en Cultures is seeking a Lecturer Hungarian
Culture and Literature.
