“Joining CEU’s Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology for my master’s studies was the best decision I could have made, and the time I have spent here has turned out to be the most intellectually stimulating phase of my life. The faculty have wide-ranging expertise and I have become particularly drawn to post-colonial studies. I appreciate the financial and academic support I received from the university, and I am very excited about the doors this experience has opened for me.”

The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Central European University (CEU) emphasizes interdisciplinary and critical approaches to social issues. The integrated study of two disciplines fosters an environment that is conscious of the historicity of social science categories and theories, their meaning in different cultures, and engagement in the practical world.
