About

The European Women's and Gender History (MATILDA) programme of study is spread over two years, includes 120 ECTS points, and links five leading European universities in an exciting, innovative and unique venture. Students can expect to study at least two different partner institutions (a ‘home’ and a ‘host’ institution), choosing from among the following:

- University of Vienna (coordinating institution)

- The Central European University (CEU) in Budapest

- The Universite Lumiere Lyon 2

- The University of Nottingham

- The Sofia University

- St. Kliment Ohridski

MATILDA at Central European University (CEU)

At CEU transnational and comparative approaches are foregrounded, with place, class, “race,” religion and other categories informing the study of women and gender in history. Thematic foci include comparative histories of “state-socialism,” women’s activism and gender politics, as well as East/West-North/South relations, nation/nationalisms, and the study of the relationship between humanity and nature. MATILDA at CEU brings together faculty from many countries and research traditions with expertise in Gender and Historical Studies (including medieval studies).

Students who enter MATILDA through CEU and graduate from CEU will receive a US-accredited diploma and a Hungarian (and thus European) diploma.

Accreditation

The Master in European Women's and Gender History (MATILDA) Program from Central European University (CEU) is approved and registered by the New York State Education Department and also accredited in Hungary.
