At first  a full-time double-major course existed, then  a correspondence course was launched in the academic year 1977/78, coupled with geography and Hungarian studies. The department has increased its double-majors under the leadership of the founder, Csendes János. Hungarian studies, history, foreign languages ​​(English, German, Russian, French), computer science, mathematics, biology, music, administration have become available to obtain a double-major  degree. The number of students steadily increased, culminating in the academic year of 2006 / 7 with a number of 600 students. Since the education system reform, the Bologna-based training, the number  of students has decreased due to the single major bachelor training. Currently the department has 76 students enrolled.
