The program’s curriculum is designed to offer a diverse range of study methods, combining traditional lectures and seminars with personalized tutorial courses. Additionally, students have the opportunity for hands-on practical training in archives and museums, as well as visits to significant historical sites. At the onset of the first semester, each student is assigned a dedicated staff member as a tutor, aligned with the chosen thesis topic, who will provide ongoing guidance and supervision throughout the thesis writing process.
Emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach, the curriculum features shared mandatory courses that are applicable to all students, regardless of their chosen chronological specialization. Within each specialization, such as Medieval and Early Modern History or Modern History, equal attention is given to both General History and Central European History. Hungarian History is seamlessly integrated into Central European History, offering students the chance to forge connections between events in Central Europe and broader European historical contexts, providing valuable insights into contemporary issues. This approach fosters a comprehensive understanding of the complex tapestry of European history.
