Corvinus University of Budapest
INSTITUTE OF SOCIOLOGY AND SOCIAL POLICY
Sociological education and research have had a traditional place at the Corvinus
University of Budapest.
In the late 1960s (economic)sociology was introduced as
an independent subject in the form of a research team with the participation of András
Hegedus, Ferenc Nemes and Iván Szelényi. In the 1970s sociology or certain special
fields of sociology gradually became part of the economics course. Sociology Department
was established at the end of the 1980s under the leadership first of Ferenc Gazsó, and
then of Rudolf Andorka, who later became the rector of the university.
At that time sociology could be studied both as a main
subject and as a subsidiary course. László Bertalan and László Csontos played a
prominent role in the development of the department profile.
