The Central European University is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and unique setting for the study of religion in a historical and comparative perspective. Situated at the crossroad of Empires and of world religions, Budapest offers a microcosm of the interactions of religions, cultures and societies.
Center for Religious Studies
The Center for Religious Studies (CRS) is an academic forum at CEU fostering the study of religion. The mission of the center is to initiate and to coordinate research and to disseminate the results of resaearch by mounting and fostering academic events, and publications that address religion-related questions in critical ways.
The CRS collaborates with relevant departments and academic units at the CEU and is a hub of work in the Humanities. It crosses the borders of disciplines, confessional and geo-political categorizations, and covers periods from ancient to modern times. With an international advisory board and institutional contacts throughout the region and worldwide, the CRS provides an important site for academic research and communication.
Specialization in Religious Studies
The Specialization Religious Studies, coordinated by the Center For Religious Studies, awards a non-degree certificate in Religious Studies. Students who enroll receive their degrees in either the Department of History or Medieval Studies. As part of their MA in History or Medieval Studies, students of this Specialization engage in the study of religious phenomena from a historical point of view, from Late Antiquity to modernity, and a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives.
The Specialization Religious Studies is a young teaching unit, launched in 2007 by the Center for Religious Studies (formerly the Religious Studies Program). Its diverse course offerings cover the three monotheistic religions, over a vast span of time, and from multidisciplinary perspectives. To this end, apart from the Departments of History and Medieval Studies, more departments participate through their course offerings, such as Philosophy, Jewish Studies Program, Sociology and Social Anthropology, International Relations and European Studies.
SRS students have been successful in receiving prestigious international scholarships for further study at leading universities such as Yale, Oxford, Chicago, and Toronto, and European research centers with placements at other universities in Europe. Some continued towards a PhD at CEU. Some entered challenging professional fields in academia, culture, arts and government.
