Overview

The PhD program in Sociology and Social Anthropology at Central European University (CEU) encourages students to conduct empirical research using a wide variety of methodologies but theoretically informed approaches which embrace a broad intellectual agenda are prioritized. Of special interest are projects that promote: the integration of sociological and anthropological perspectives as well as methodologies; comparative approaches to urban processes; economic formations and transformations; research on social networks; generation of inequalities; meanings and practices of gender; transnational migration and dynamics of place-making; and social movements.

Research opportunity

During the first year of the doctoral program, students undertake a rigorous, yet flexible program of coursework. Alongside mandatory courses developing epistemological and methodological approaches to sociology and social anthropology, elective courses provide in-depth studies of different subject areas. 

Students also have the option to undertake a semester-long Independent Study Module where a maximum of two students, under the supervision of one faculty member, devise a reading list related to their project.
