THE HISTORY OF THE FACULTY
The Faculty embraces disciplines of long tradition: Pedagogy, the old discipline of Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), and Psychology, which was first established here in our country, and undertakes the amalgamation of these two in the area of teacher training. The historically significant reorganistion of the Hungarian higher education – Bologna Process – brings the education of Community Culture (as a special field of Andragogy) close to our profile, which is organised by our Faculty as well, and the Physical Education also belongs to our organisational units.
The profile of the faculty is twofold. On the one hand, it teaches students attending pedagogy, psychology, psychical education and recreation as their major. On the other hand, it also instructs students from all faculties of the University in teacher training or teachers’ further training (approximately 10 000 students altogether).
It covers the organisational advocacy of teacher training in co-operation with the departments and methodological sections of other faculties and with the field-work training sites of teacher training. In addition the Faculty provides PE courses and sports opportunities for the students of every faculty.
The Faculty also provides psychological life-conduct counselling to all students of the University.
