“Communication and media studies” (CMS) in Hungary are in a paradoxical situation. On the one hand, CMS has become an established discipline, institutionalized in many departments with the abundance of applications since 1990. On the other hand, the embeddedness of the discipline is still considerably low in both the national and international academic community. The lack of any possibility to obtain the title “Doctor of Science” (DSc) in communication and media studies serves as an example of the challenges facing CMS scholars in Hungary. Data demonstrate that the contribution of Hungarian academics to international scholarship is rather poor (Demeter, 2018a). The low participation in international research projects reveals another alarming phenomenon related to CMS in Hungary.
