We offer an intensive, cross-disciplinary course of study on all aspects of history and culture between 300 and 1600 CE. Renowned faculty help you uncover and understand the past of Central and Western Europe, as well as the Byzantine, Slavic, Jewish, Arab and Ottoman worlds, in a global context. Our strong relationship with local universities and cultural institutions, on-site learning and field trip opportunities, online teaching methods, internship program and source language courses make us an ideal incubator for future scholars and professionals in and outside of academia. In addition to coursework at the Vienna campus, and the use of Vienna’s rich libraries and museums, students may also take advantage of academic activities and resources available on CEU’s Budapest campus as well as our exhaustive library on all things medieval.
