CEU has expanded its academic activities in New York in cooperation with Bard College, with second-year students in CEU’s MA in International Relations program studying with CEU faculty alongside internships at well-known international organizations. The students earn credit toward their U.S.-accredited degree.
Students have begun internships at the Council on Foreign Relations, Nonviolence International, Global Initiatives and Asia Society Policy Institute, and Oxford Analytica. Students are taking courses including “Critical Military Studies,"; "Ethics for a Connected World”; “Writing on International Affairs”; “War, Power and Terror in International Affairs,” and a seminar on “The City as a Global Actor.”
“This is a fully-fledged, academically sound and engaging extension to our program here in Budapest that also offers opportunities not to be found anywhere in the world but New York,” said Alexander Astrov, associate professor in, and head of, the Department of International Relations. “This is an important enhancement to CEU’s program and promises to be a valuable experience for CEU students.”
