The Centre of Arts, Humanities and Sciences is a multi-disciplinary coordinating unit within the University of Debrecen comprising eight academic faculties, one secondary and two primary schools and a number of interfaculty units (for instance, the European Studies Centre, student hostels, the Sports and Physical Education Centre, the nursery and day care establishments). Entrusted with economic self-government within the University, it serves as a coordinating and mediating forum, which represents unified interests in negotiations with external institutions. This training and economic coordination encompasses research, innovation, development, education, teacher training, and external relations. The Centre is the professional base of teacher training at the University level.
The integrated University of Debrecen draws meaning from its three centers (the Centre of Agriculture, the Medical and Health Sciences Centre and the Centre of Arts, Humanities and Sciences), which, through their cooperation, ensure the multi-disciplinary background, which in turn guarantee the University a leading role as a research and education institution.
