Master’s Programs in History, 2014/2015



“ The cosmopolitan character of CEU’s student body
and teaching staff was one of the many reasons I applied to the University.
The diversity of backgrounds
and experiences my colleagues bring to the classroom
has broadened my knowledge of Central and Eastern
Europe in a way that I can truly begin to place my
research in a comparative frame. And the conversations I
have with classmates outside the seminar rooms
continue to enrich my understanding of contemporary
politics in a rapidly changing part of Europe. ”
