About the course

Who we are

Breaking down disciplinary and geographical borders, our programs offer broad-based training in the history of Eastern, Central and Western Europe; the Eastern Mediterranean; the Middle East; and Central Asia. Guided by an international faculty from 16 countries, you will take a closer look at the Habsburg, Romanov and Ottoman Empires and their legacies, as well as the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century through the lens of religious, cultural, intellectual and social history. You will also benefit from our innovative approach to researching, understanding and teaching comparative and transnational history. In addition to coursework at the Vienna campus, students may also take advantage of academic activities and resources available on CEU’s Budapest campus.

Student Profile(s)

Ksenia Litvinenko

“I feel very lucky to have been a part of CEU’s History Department. Being interested in the history of Soviet architecture, I have gained a lot of inspiration from faculty and fellow students doing their own research in various fields. Working with them, I have developed a more nuanced perspective on my own work and learned a lot about new historical contexts and approaches. CEU is a perfect place for such exchange, debates and making friends for life.”
