ROMANIAN LITERARY STUDIES
Tailored to the European standards of master-degree and postgraduate programs, this MA program provides both the theoretical training that should go into the shaping of proficient researchers and the professional training required for performing highly specialized cultural mediation tasks, increasingly on demand in the context of New Europe. Romanian studies are naturally inserted in a European context comprising the history of ideas, next to the theories of cultural and political identities. The possibility of further improvement through one-semester studies at outstanding partner universities in Europe enhances the program’s excellence, international visibility and competitiveness on the academic market. Professional practice is carried out in partnership with outstanding publishing houses and libraries in Cluj-Napoca and, respectively, the “Sextil Pușcariu” Institute of the Romanian Academy.
ROMANIAN LANGUAGE IN ROMANIC CONTEXT
The master program is holded by the Department of Romanian Language and General Linguistics. Head of the program is conf. dr. Daiana Cuibus.
It reaches two academic years, being connected to another master program, called Current Trends in Linguistics (head of the program prof. dr. Stefan Oltean).

HUNGARIAN LINGUISTICS AND LITERARY STUDIES
Standard Length of Studies: 2 years – 4 semesters – 130 ECTS
The programme is addressed to BA graduates of humanities and social sciences, who wish to consolidate and deepen their knowledge on the field of Hungarian language and literature in a multidisciplinary context.
Following the new trends that appeared in linguitics and literary studies, with frameworks and methodologies different from the traditional ones, Hungarian Linguistics and Literary Studies proposes to offer a synthetic view of these trends and of their methodologies. We aim to familiarize the students with the methodological frameworks and applications of these theories and to enable the students to use the theories in question for the analysis of linguistic and literary data, and thus train them to carry out research in linguistics, in language related areas and literary studies.
This curricular rationale foregrounds both the preservation and the cultivation of Hungarian culture, and aims at the renewal of Transylvanian public life and the efficiency of cultural institutions.
KULTÚRA ÉS TÁRSADALOM – HAGYOMÁNY ÉS MODERNITÁS KÖZÖTT

Selective list of courses: Tradition and Society; Representation and Power; Anthropology of Socialism and Postsocialism; Modernization and Traditional Societies; Anthropology of Imaginary.
MASTER OF ARTS IN BRITISH CULTURAL STUDIES
This programme is designed to equip students with the modern research and study techniques essential to successful completion of postgraduate degree work. The course is full time and lasts four semesters. The approach that is adopted is student-centred, with staff seen as advisers and facilitators, as well as tutors. It is expected that students will work on their own, in pairs, and in groups in order to supplement the materials provided during tuition time. There is considerable importance placed on the students’ own (guided) research work: it is hoped that this increased responsibility for their learning will also allow students to have a greater involvement in input, task and materials selection, and course outcomes.
The course is designed to be the platform from which students may develop analytical techniques which may be applied to a number of disciplines and to any society. These techniques would correspond to those enumerated at the Strathclyde University conference on Materials Evaluation, and are taken from linguistic, literary, anthropological, ethnographical and film theory, and would include semiotic analysis, discourse analysis, genre analysis, register analysis, interview techniques, observation techniques etc. It is to be hoped that the critical awareness developed during the course will be applicable and relevant to diverse professions, from teaching, journalism and business management through to politics, economics and the diplomatic field.
The subjects discussed will focus on sociolinguistic aspects of Great Britain, media issues, English-specific aspects of translation, new directions in literature in Great Britain, etc.

EUROPEAN MASTERS IN CONFERENCE INTERPRETING
Hosted by the Applied Modern Languages Department the Masters in Conference Interpreting (MIC) was created in 2002 upon the initiative of Mrs Rodica Baconsky with the considerable support of the Interpreting Services of the EU: SCIC and EP. Running for seven years in the format of a one-year program, the MIC has always complied with high quality standards in both teaching and assessment.
Since October 2007, the MIC has become the only Romanian program accepted into the EMCI consortium, as a full partner alongside the best 17 interpreting schools throughout Europe. As of October 2008, what was presently the European Masters in Conference Interpreting of Cluj (MEIC) converted to a Bologna-type program, covering 2 years with 4 full semesters of training.
Many of our graduates and staff are active interpreters with the EU institutions – either fonctionnaires or freelance – but other career opportunities are also open on the local and regional market.
