Benedek Kurdi (MA 2012-2013)
Doctoral Candidate, Social Psychology, Harvard University
"The curriculum of the Political Science MA program at CEU offers a reasonably broad and, at the same time, in-depth introduction to the social sciences. The Department of Political Science is very special in the sense that whereas each professor has their own preferred methods (from behavior genetics and agent-based modeling to fuzzy sets and discourse analysis), everyone is remarkably open to other approaches and taken as a collective, the faculty are relying on a very wide range of theories and practical tools. However, what I benefited from even more than coursework was the incredible mentorship that I received at CEU, including many opportunities to participate in all stages of the empirical research process."
