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, academic events, and publications that address religion-related questions in critical ways.
The CRS is an integral part of the School of Historical and Interdisciplinary Studies and collaborates with relevant departments and academic units at the CEU. 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, offered by the School of History and Interdisciplinary Studies, awards a non-degree certificate in Religious Studies. Students will enroll and 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 will 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 offers 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.
In the past, students were successful in receiving prestigious international scholarships and in entering challenging professional fields.
