Starting from the fall of 2006, the instruction of library and information science majors in Hungary has been enacted in a two-tier education system complying with the Bologna declaration for higher education. It was in spring of 2008 that the Ministry of Education and Culture released the list of requirements for training and qualification of the second level, the magister (or master's) degree, which determines the corpus of knowledge and professional competences the would-be graduates are to command.
