Byzantine, Slavic, Jewish, Arab, and Ottoman
career path

The CEU Medieval Studies Department presents

ways to think differently about the medieval histories
of Central Europe and the Central Mediterranean
as well as its ancient languages. It offers an interdisciplinary approach that was completely unknown
to me not only during my local university education
but in a certain sense also in my narrower field of
research (medieval history of art in Central Europe).
By using this methodology, I was able to tackle
connections in my doctoral research which may
have well been invisible to me otherwise. I hope,
that by writing my dissertation by these means,
I can contribute to opening up new ways in the
methodology of Hungarian (and Central European)
research of medieval art history.

This program is designed for applicants with a strong research agenda who already have an
academic background in medieval history or related disciplines such as philology/literature,
philosophy, art history, or archaeology with a focus on medieval Latin, Slavonic, Byzantine, or
early modern Ottoman culture. Students in the program pursue an intensive, multidisciplinary
study of Late Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Early Modern period, including an emphasis
on modern research methodologies and the languages of medieval source materials.
Master of Arts in Comparative History:
Interdisciplinary Medieval Studies (Two Years)
Offered jointly with the Department of History, the medieval track of this program focuses

training, graduates of the program will be capable of working at various levels in cultural heritage/
cultural resource management aimed at creating models of sustainable heritage protection.
Doctor of Philosophy in Medieval Studies
The doctoral program is designed for candidates pursuing various career paths, especially (but
not limited to) teaching and research. The program stresses the interconnectedness of various
