Education in the natural sciences in Pécs began in 1948 at the Teacher Training College. After the College had merged with the University and become part of its Teacher Training Faculty, constant development of technical conditions and academic staff took place, and as a result, it became possible to establish the Faculty of Sciences in 1992.

 TheFaculty of Sciences Faculty inherited several regional functions of the former Teacher Training College. Its lecturers in the natural sciences play a decisive role in the intellectual life of South Transdanubia and make a significant contribution to the scientific development of the region.
The Faculty has seven institutes, including altogether more than 30 departments. Training is offered in a variety of subjects. BSc and MSc degrees issued by the Faculty qualify specialists and teachers of Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, Geography, Information Technology, Mathematics, Physical Education and Physics. A high number of students enrol for the PhD programs offered at the Faculty in biology, chemistry, geography and physics.
The highly qualified staff comprises more than 150 full-time and part-time lecturers including Members of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, doctors of the HAS (DSc) and doctors of philosophy in all disciplines. The research activity and scientific output of certain disciplines at the Faculty are recognised internationally at a very high level.

  • invertebrate and vertebrate neurobiology;
  • population dynamics, zootaxonomy;
  • microbial genetics, microbial pathogenesis;

The Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Humanities share a library with a stock of 300,000 volumes. The Faculty is supported by advanced computer technology and a wide range of modern IT devices for the local network, so the Internet is easily accessible. The Faculty is an excellent venue for scientific meetings, as witnessed by several outstanding scientific events successfully hosted by our school.
The buildings of the Faculty of Sciences are situated in an environment that is highly suitable for recreational purposes too: the Botanical Garden, a protected area of local significance, represents a high scientific value in the region, and the sports grounds and the Sports Centre are part of the Faculty of Sciences - Faculty of Humanities campus. Some courses are also offered in foreign languages and are open not only to Erasmus students but to Hungarians and international students as well. Non-Erasmus students pay a tuition fee which varies depending on course-related costs. The credit system was introduced in September 2002.
