Founded by Ernest Gellner, this is one of the few programs in the world solely dedicated to the study of nationalism, including migration, ethnic conflict, prejudice, self-determination, populism, minority protection and language and citizenship rights. Providing a thorough theoretical and methodological grounding, our extensive curriculum is continually evolving to reflect new realities. You will also have the chance to investigate problems of nationalism in the context of economic and political transition in post-1989 Eastern and Southeastern Europe, with a comparative outlook on regime transitions across the globe.

Gabriella Komoly

“When I enrolled in the two-year program, I found myself in an academic environment that is not only friendly and inspiring, but very interdisciplinary as well. Nationalism Studies and its Jewish Studies specialization offered courses from many disciplines that truly opened my eyes to the world and helped me carry out my research in the best possible way. I have also become part of a fantastic network through which I have found colleagues and true friends from all around the globe.”
