New Department of Historical Studies to be launched in September 2024!
From next academic year, the Departments of History and Medieval Studies will join forces and launch CEU's new Department of Historical Studies. Together we will continue the proud legacy that the two departments have built over more than three decades and offer expertise that extends across geographical regions, academic disciplines, and historical periods. In the past academic year, students, staff, and faculty came together to develop a shared vision for the future department and dedicated themselves to revising our MA and PhD programs, creating a suite of exciting new graduate degrees.
Do you want to study the past from late antiquity to the present? Are you interested in earning an MA or a PhD in History with course offerings across chronological, regional, and disciplinary boundaries, or a specialized degree in Late Antique & Medieval Studies? Do you want to put yourself on the path to an academic career? Do you want to gain practical skills and experience that will prepare you for jobs in the public sphere, museums, or cultural heritage? CEU's new Department of Historical Studies will make this possible. To be launched in September 2024. 
Applications for our new programs are open now.

The Department is a thriving part of Central European University (CEU), the only transnational, English-language graduate school in Europe that is accredited both in the European Union and the United States. The transnational academic environment challenges our faculty and students to study the past and present using the most innovative methodologies and theoretical frameworks from a global perspective, and to work closely together and learn from one another in order to produce new knowledge and ground-breaking research. Our department brings together related teaching units (Medieval Studies Department, the Nationalism Studies Program) and research centers (Open Society Archives, Pasts, Inc., Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, the Center for Religious Studies and the Jewish Studies Program). Read more...
