Master of Arts Degree Programs
The Department of History offers four Master's programs.
- The Master of Arts in Comparative History (1 year) is registered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York (US) for and on behalf of the New York State Education Department, and is also accredited as "further professional training" ("szakirányú továbbképzés") by the Hungarian Accreditation Committee.
- The Master of Arts in Comparative History: From 1500 to the Present Time (2 years) was created specifically for those students who graduate with a 3-year Bachelor of Arts degree from European institutions, and for others whose previous training makes this more appropriate. In November 2007, this new program became registered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York (US) for and on behalf of the New York State Education Department, and in July 2008 by the Hungarian Accreditation Committee.
- The third is the two-year "History in the Public Sphere" degree which is an Erasmus Mundus program in collaboration with partner universities in Tokyo, Japan; Lisbon, Portugal; Florence, Italy; and Paris, France. Students spend the first semester in Vienna, followed by a January workshop in Budapest, second semester in Tokyo, and third and fourth semesters in Florence or Lisbon.
- Since Fall 2008 students may also pursue the MATILDA European Master in Women's and Gender History, offered by CEU's Departments of History and Gender Studies in collaboration with several other leading European universities (University of Vienna, Université Lumière Lyon 2, Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, Universià degli Studi di Padova, Ruhr-Universität Bochum) within the EU Erasmus program.
The CEU History Department is home to the doctoral program PhD in Comparative History. The Department also cooperates with a European consortium in offering a joint doctoral program under the rubric "Europe and the Invention of Modernity."
For non-CEU doctoral students, the CEU History Department also offers opportunities to study at CEU through its Doctoral Support Program. Please see the appropriate pages for further information about the programs and application procedures.
