ngyal discusses experiences as Fulbright Lecturer
By Aleta Sinkfield
I'1 found the Hungarian culture
j be both exhilerating and
pressing,” said Dr. Andrew
igyal, associate professor of
iglish, of his experience last
ring as a Fulbright Lecturer,
e discussed his stay in Hungary
1 Tuesday morning in Mooney
ngyal was a Fulbright Lec
turer at Louis Kossuth Universi
ty in Debrecen, Hungary, where
he taught American Literature.
“There is a special interest in
American Literature all around
Europe,” he said.
Angyal said that he chose to
carry out his term as Fulbright
Lecturer in Hungary because of
personal interests. “I wanted to
go to a socialist country to find
out how it operated and I also
wanted to find out more about my
roots in Hungary,” he said.
One of the major differences
Angyal encountered while
teaching at the university was that
“the students work more diligent
ly that American students, while
Hungarian professors work
less,” he said.
According to Angyal, the
university is approximately the
size of Elon, having an enroll
ment of about 3,000. Students are
admitted to a specific program.
rather than to the university as a
whole. “Admission to the univer
sity is highly selective,” he said.
An extremely competitive state
examination is given so that only
10 percent of those wanting to at
tend a university actually do.
The university operates on a
five-year program rather than a
four-year program. The students
call it the Prussian-Russian
At the end of the first, second
and third years, students must
take a strict state examination to
indicate their progress. Each stu
dent writes a thesis during the
fourth year and takes an exit ex
am during the fifth year.
Angyal said that most students
carry a 36 one-credit courses per
semester and everyone has a dou
ble major. The classes are small,
consisting of 10-15 students.
