The Comparative History (1 Year) program at Central European University (CEU) will encourage students to explore a multitude of scholarly approaches and disciplines, including oral history, historical anthropology, intellectual history, conceptual history, microhistory, urban history and gender history, for a better understanding of European and global processes.
