Because of the vicissitudes of 1919 history, the university of Koloozsvár (Cluj) had to move. The National Assembly decided in 1921 (article XXV of 1921) to locate this university in Szeged. At first, it operated in the neo-Renaissance building of a modern higher education school built in 1873 then, in 1925 the faculty of letters and part of the faculty of science moved and settled in the neo-Romanesque building constructed, originally, to be the regional seat of the roads of iron (Iron is a chemical element, with the symbol Fe and atomic number 26. It is the transition metal and the most common ferromagnetic material in everyday life, in pure form or in alloys. Iron …) Hungarian 2 street (The street is a circulation space in the city that serves housing and places of economic activity.

Teaching of psychology 1929-1940
Dezső Hildebrand Várkonyi
The request by Sándor Imre and György Málnási Bartók would not have been sufficient. The establishment in 1929 of the Institute of pedagogy (Pedagogy is, etymologically, the action of "driving the children", from the Greek PAIDAGÔGIA. It is therefore the art of educating. The term …) and Psychology No. 2 (to distinguish it from the existing Institute of Pedagogy) was the result of favorable circumstances. The number (The notion of number in linguistics is dealt with in the article "Grammatical number".) of students from the Faculty of Letters transferred from Kolozsvár (Cluj) was very small, so it was in danger of disappearing. It’s the Minister of Education and Culture (Culture is a pan-galactic civilization invented by Iain M. Banks through his science fiction novels and short stories. Described with great precision and …) Kunot Klebelsberg who helped her break the deadlock. He united two higher schools of pedagogy in Budapest which trained teachers for pupils in upper primary schools (the Paedagogum and the Elisabeth School for women) and transferred this new institution to Szeged in 1928. It was a higher school of pedagogy, but his students had to do one of their specializations at the university.,
Kunót Klebelsberg had no religious prejudices, but, since the teachers from Kolozsvár (Cluj) were Protestants and the Catholic bishops, he agreed to appoint the Catholic teacher János Mester (1879-1954) to direct the Institute II of Philosophy, while the Institute of Philosophy was directed by Bartók Béla Málnási professor belonging to the Reformed Church and the Catholic professor Sándor Sík was appointed to head the Department of Literature History No II while the Department of Literature History No I was chaired by Professor Lajos Dézsi of Reformed religion. Competition has been beneficial. Dezső Várkonyi-Hildenbrand as well as Sándor Sík have been very valuable professors at the University of Szeged. Professor János Mester, philosopher, has been seriously involved in both psychology and pedagogy.
With the appointment of Dezső Hildebrand Várkonyi, Benedictine, at the direction of the Institute of pedagogy and independent psychology on December 18, 1929, the teaching of psychology could be renewed as well in its spirit as in its methods. The creation of this institution is the first in Hungary. In Budapest, the establishment of a teaching of psychology was not carried out until 1936 by Pál Harkai Schiller under the name of Institute of Psychology.
After the appointment of Professor Várkonyi the studies of psychology we received a orientation (In the literal sense, the orientation designates or materializes the direction of the Orient (sunrise at the equinox) and of the cardinal points (north of the compass);) sustainable with the right to award the title of Doctor of Psychology. In accordance with the main trends in pedagogy and psychology of the time, they were mainly interested in child psychology, developmental psychology and the problems of educational psychology.
His courses broadened the spiritual horizon of the university: he made known the modern currents of psychology and their representatives as Sigmund Freud (Sigmund Freud (German pronunciation: ˈsiːkmʊnt ˈfʁɔʏt), born Sigismund Schlomo Freud on May 6, 1856 in Freiberg, Moravia (Austria, today …), Alfred Adler, Carl Gustav Jung (Carl Gustav Jung (pronounced (ˈkarl ˈɡʊstaf ˈjʊŋ) listen) is a doctor, psychiatrist, …), Jean Piaget. In the memories of his students he appears as a personality always available and who has often abandoned the rigid style and manner of his colleagues.
In the 1930s István Boda, as "privatdocent" of the university, gave courses on The concrete psychological problems of research concerning intelligence and personality development.
In 1940, a new turning point in the life (Life is the name given 🙂 from the University of Szeged: after the resumption of North (The north is a cardinal point, opposite to the south.) from Transylvania, François-Joseph University was transferred to Kolozsvár (Cluj), which led to the move (A move is an action which consists in removing all or part of the movable goods contained in a room to transport them to another.
