Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to Undergraduate Studies at CEU.

As a member of CEU's inaugural BA cohort you have the opportunity to make history.

Our mission as a university is to let research flourish, to defend academic freedom, and to furnish our students with the critical skills and the confidence to think for themselves and become leaders in whatever career paths they choose.

We're looking for pioneers, dreamers, problem solvers & leaders.

Combining the best of American and European traditions, and taught by professors who are leaders in their fields, our great new BA programs are at the cutting edge of undergraduate education, globally.

For a generation coming of age at a time when the future of work is unclear, climate change is a reality, and old political institutions are in crisis, choosing the right university programme is of vital importance.

Our new BA programs do not pretend that these processes are not unfolding. Philosophy, Politics, and EconomicsCulture, Politics, and Society, and Qualitative Social Sciences have been developed specifically to empower students to understand the past, analyze the present, and shape the future both personally and professionally in light of the major challenges the world is facing.

We are excited to extend the high-quality teaching which is a hallmark of CEU's graduate programs.

Closely linked to our graduate programs, the CEU undergraduate learning experience is designed around students who seek to challenge themselves. But we want our students to have a rich BA experience outside the classroom too. Our highly experienced team will help with everything ranging from the most personal, academic or psychological needs, to career development beyond the BA. You will benefit from the abundant artistic and cultural offerings of the city of Vienna, voted time and time again as the world's most livable city, travel easily throughout Europe, take advantage of international exchange programs, and develop life-long friendships spanning the world.

We invite you to make history with us. Join us in Vienna.
