Stefan Gužvica's picture

The Department of History at the Central European University is pleased to announce its call for applications for graduate programs in history beginning in the fall of 2019. We offer one- and two-year MA programs, as well as a doctoral program, with tuition wavers and scholarships for the majority of students.

As of September 2019, CEU will be accepting all incoming students to its new Vienna campus. At the same time, it will remain closely tied to the original Budapest campus, operating as a bi-campus university centered around two major Central European capitals. Students will have an opportunity to spend their semesters in both cities, benefiting from their respective academic and cultural environments. The quality of education and the variety of experience offered at CEU is an excellent stepping stone for furthering your academic career: our graduates are currently pursuing doctoral degrees at Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Princeton, Duke, Chicago, Georgetown, Northwestern, UCSD, UCLA, as well as leading European institutions such as Cambridge, Oxford, Exeter, and Birkbeck.

The international faculty and student body at the History Department (currently our faculty represents 16 countries, while our student cohort comes from 29 countries) provide a distinctive possibility of thinking about history across geographical regions, historical periods, and disciplines. Furthermore, CEU remains committed to providing education available for all. The vast majority of our students receive generous financial aid that allows them to dedicate their full energies to their studies.

The deadline for applications with financial aid is January 31, 2019 at 23:59 Central European Time (CET). The deadline for self-financing applicants is May 1, 2019 at 23:59 CET.
