General Aspect of the Program
A historical approach, present social relevance (policy and management), and the integration of cultural and natural heritage issues are the three pillars of the program.
The master programme Cultural Heritage Studies at Central European University (CEU) offers a global viewpoint within local Central European heritage contexts (capital of culture, World Heritage sites, urban environmental imperatives, local issues of conflicting interests)
One of the principles CEU is based on is respect for the diversity of cultures and peoples. As the University attracts students and faculty from 100 countries from around the world, it is an ideal host of a cultural heritage program dealing with disparate traditions, practices and social interactions.
