CEU's Summer University program 2011 hosts high-level, research-oriented, interdisciplinary and innovative academic courses as well as workshops on policy issues for professional development in the social sciences and the humanities.
The summer school is a meeting place for academics and professionals fro all over the world, eager to look beyond their disciplinary boundaries. During SUN everyone particularly enjoys the exposure to this immense diversity of countries, disciplines, views, and perspectives. Discussions are encouraged and conducted in an atmosphere of tolerance and intellectual curiosity.
Courses involve distinguished international faculty (including CEU professors), and excellent graduate students, junior or post-doctoral researchers, teachers and professionals as participants. While application from all over the world is encouraged, continued priority is given to applicants from Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and countries experiencing emerging democracies worldwide. Applicants from these countries, when admitted on merit, will be eligible for scholarship, while those from developed countries will usually be expected to pay fees.
Course offerings cater for the various needs of academic and professional development across a wide spectrum of disciplines. These include anthropology, cognitive science, environmental sciences, gender, media and legal studies, philosophy, political science, public policy, sociology, etc.
The program is unique in its diversity of faculty and student body as well as its academic offerings. It brings together groups of interested individuals to study together intensively for two or three weeks in Budapest coming from an enormously varied geographical, cultural and academic background.
