CFA- History Department, 1-Year and 2-Year MA Programs, Central European Univ.

Posted by: Matthias Riedl <>

The History Department at CEU Budapest invites new applications for
1-year and 2-year MA programs.

The History Department of Central European University, Budapest, is
the only transnational, English-language graduate school in Europe
that is accredited both on our continent (in Hungary) and the United

The department is a highly cosmopolitan place of learning, a site of
transnational academic socialization where sophisticated scholarship
is combined with an easy-going atmosphere and social relevance. See

The student body is just about half men and half women. In recent
years it included students from all across Europe, Central Asia, the
Near and Middle East, Central and North Americas, even the Pacific.
Altogether, students from over thirty countries have studied here.
Virtually all of them receive grants, fellowships, as well as other
forms of needs- and merit-based financial assistance.

The faculty, staff, and students are cosmopolitan and multilingual;
permanent and recurrent visiting faculty comes from Austria,
Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, and the
United States. The curriculum is comparative, interdisciplinary, and
up-to-date with the most recent developments in scholarship.

It is possible to concentrate on a number of special subjects or
specializations, especially ones that, from a wider global
perspective, may be regarded as defining the historical identity of
the region, such as Jewish Studies Specialization or Religious
Studies Specialization.

Applications are invited for two MA programs: in one-year (Master of
Arts in Central European History), designed for students who have
completed at least a four-year Bachelor's degree; and in two years
(Master of Arts in Historical Studies, offered jointly with the
Department of Medieval Studies), designed for those who have
completed a three-year Bachelor's degree. There is also a PhD program
in Comparative History of Central, Southeastern and Eastern Europe).

Deadline: January 26, 2009
