Thank you very much for running and developing the Religious Studies Specialization. To be honest, I would have not attended CEU, if it had not been for this opportunity to study what I am most interested in: religions. I also thank you for your contribution to my future in the academia and for teaching me how to think critically and always with "a pinch of doubt".

I am grateful for the Religious Studies Specialization for creating a curriculum that has enabled to transform my “intuitions into knowledge” about religion, and supplemented this metamorphosis with many bottles of wine, cookies and strawberries throughout the year.

I have been interested in religious history since my first years of studies at Kyiv-Mohyla academy in Kiev. After graduation, I wanted to continue my studies at Central European University and the Specialization Religious Studies at CEU was the logical continuation of my previous pursuits.

When I entered the program, I did not know much about it, but it happened to be one of the best choices I’ve ever made.

I received an e-mail at the beginning of my studies at CEU that drew my attention on the Religious Studies Program. I already had experience in working on various types of archival sources produced by and/or about religious orders in late eighteenth-century Hungary and I wanted to improve my professional literacy in order to develop a suitable theoretical background for their interpretation. The Specialization in Religious Studies at CEU offered me an appropriate framework to realize my plans.

When I applied to the Department of History at CEU I was looking for a program connected with a study of religion and the SRS, with its interdisciplinary approaches, seemed to fit my interests perfectly. From the very outset I felt really lucky to participate in the program because I got a chance to chose from a variety of courses offered by the SRS and to obtain a certificate in addition to my CEU Master’s diploma.
