About us


The Cultural Heritage Studies Program, to be hosted from 2024 at the Department of Historical Studies, combines theoretical and practical education, offering a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches with a strong emphasis on practical knowledge and skills based on fieldwork, and internships with local, regional and global heritage organizations. Graduates of the program will be capable of working at various levels in cultural heritage and resource research, protection, and management.

Cultural Heritage Studies: Academic Research, Policy, Management  is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary MA program of CEU intended to educate individuals who wish to become heritage experts and practitioners. It is developed and administered by a program committee from different academic disciplines and units. Permanent and visiting international faculty members include experts in a range of disciplines, such as archaeology, art history, anthropology, history, legal studies, and environmental studies.

The program focuses on developing aptitudes for the critical assessment of tangible structures and objects such as buildings, monuments, archaeological sites, and works of art; on intangible heritage like traditions, languages, and knowledge; and on environmental heritage connected to human-nature interactions.

Cultural Heritage Studies and Policy is also open as a specialization for students of the 1 year and 2 year MA programs in Medieval Studies.
