Entry Requirements for the Master’s Programs
In addition to meeting the General CEU Admissions Requirements (see: https://www.ceu.edu/apply), applicants must provide a:
- 500-word outline of their proposed research topic (1.5 spaced) for their MA thesis. The thesis topic should fall within the broad thematic focus of the department and the areas of interest of its faculty. Previous work in relevant fields as well as research experience in related areas, if any should be also mentioned. Your MA proposal should specify your proposed MA research project, and why you think you and the project are a good fit for our department. This can include specifying your proposed topic and methods; a brief literature review which situates your project within existing scholarly work; the social relevance of your project to the world at large; and reference to your proposed project’s suitability to CEU’s Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology. We strongly encourage you to visit the CEU’s Center for Academic Writing site. For further guidance on how to write a research proposal: http://caw.ceu.edu/online-writing-resources#Genres
