Location

 

Location

  • Despite the scars of four decades of communist rule, Budapest retains a rich turn-of-the-century feel and easy-to-live-in charm.
  • Buda and Pest, two halves facing each other across the wide Danube River, make up this grand city where you’ll find a medieval neighborhood and castle, Baroque architecture, and hundreds of museums, theaters, and galleries.
  • Often called "the Paris of the East", Budapest is a destination that appeals to students who want to study off the beaten path in a cosmopolitan European city.

Academics

 

Academics

Established in 1990, the CIEE Study Center in Budapest offers students a series of specially designed courses in a variety of fields such as history, politics, economics, culture, and current issues. The program allows students to explore a dynamic Central European culture while immersing themselves in Hungarian language. The CIEE program in Budapest is intended for students who have an interest in Hungary and Central Europe, as well as political, social, and/or economic transformation from state control to democratic market-based systems.

The program includes visits to sites of historic and cultural importance in and around Budapest such as museums, galleries, and theaters. Students also participate in field trips (both day and weekend trips) to the Danube Bend and to other culturally and historically significant parts of Hungary. A special feature of the program, and a highlight each semester, is a 4-day study tour to rural Hungarian villages in Transylvania (in Romania), which are seldom visited by foreigners. Students stay with families and learn about this unique multiethnic area, one of Europe's most ethnically diverse regions.

While the CIEE Budapest program has a partnership with Corvinus University Business School, Emory College students are permitted to take no more than one business course while studying abroad.

Emory students are required to take the mandatory Hungarian Language Course.
