The doctoral program in Medieval Studies offers an entry into historical worlds not often conjoined. The major aims of the program are to encourage transdisciplinary medievalist research, open new perspectives and develop new approaches. Indeed, the research conducted by CEU PhD candidates often acts as a bridge between the scholarly worlds of their home intellectual communities and Anglo-American scholarly discourse, a fact in which the department takes pride. High-level knowledge of the source language(s) is an entry requirement for PhD applicants.
Most students admitted to CEU doctoral programs are eligible to receive the CEU Doctoral Fellowship for up to three years. Doctoral enrollment may continue up to a maximum of six years.
Numerous additional funding opportunities exist, such as the Doctoral Research Support Grant Program, the Erasmus Mobility Scheme, and various research and travel funds.
