How to apply

We would like to assist you with your application.

To choose from the programs offered by the History Department, please read the descriptions of the 1-Year MA Program and the 2-Year MA Program. Based on your previous training and your current and future interests you should choose the program which is best suited to your needs. For those interested in Doctoral studies, please familiarize yourself with our PhD Program.

Please also consider the non-degree specializations and advanced certificate programs offered by our department. If you are interested in one of them, you should indicate this in your application. In case you wish to apply for Religious Studies or Jewish Studies scholarships, please attach a statement to your application.

The two-year MA in Comparative History degree is accredited both in Hungary and the US. However, those who wish to obtain a double-accredited degree must adhere to the requirements specified in the Hungarian Higher Education Act. The Act currently stipulates that by the time of their enrollment accepted students must have at least 50 credits in the field of history completed throughout their previous BA or MA courses. Students who do not meet this precondition need to fulfill additional requirements prescribed by the faculty. 

Our admissions process for all degree programs is handled online via the Office of Admissions. Please consult "How to apply" for step-by-step guidelines on how to submit your application and then use the online application form for your desired program.
