CEU’s Department of Medieval Studies currently offers three internationally highly competitive degree programs.
- MA in Medieval Studies – a research-oriented, intensive one-year program entailing a limited amount of coursework, aiming to prepare students for doctoral studies in the field of multi- and interdisciplinary Medieval Studies. It is recommended for applicants who come with a background in any aspect of medieval or historical studies and a minimum of four years of undergraduate/previous studies.
- MA in Comparative History – a taught two-year program allowing for a larger amount of coursework before candidates begin to research and write their theses during the second year. This program is highly recommended to applicants who come from an academic background other than medieval studies – or have fewer than four years of undergraduate/previous studies – and wish to add expertise in medieval studies to their portfolio. Just as the one-year MA, the two-year MA provides a targeted preparation for pursuing doctoral studies in Medieval Studies or a related field.
- PhD in Interdisciplinary Medieval, Byzantine and Late Antique Studies (PhD in Medieval Studies for short) – a research- and thesis-writing-oriented program consisting of one year of coursework in the department, followed by a second year at CEU, before PhD candidates are encouraged to gather international experience. Students of the department hold outstanding records of gaining prestigious scholarships, pre-doctoral fellowships, etc.
The department welcomes applications for each of these programs; the application period usually stretches from November to March for studies beginning in early September. CEU offers generous financial support; all applicants are eligible to receive full and partial scholarships, tuition wavers, living allowances, etc.
The language of instruction is English; applicants who are not either native speakers or hold a degree from an English-speaking university will be required to take a TOEFL test before final admission to the department.
Our doctoral and two-year Master of Arts degrees are accredited both in the United States and in Hungary. The one-year Master of Arts degree is accredited in the United States.
