CEU US Programs

Following the conclusion of the CEU-Bard College agreement in summer 2017, CEU has established a teaching site in the State of New York, authorized by the New York State Education Department and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. A certificate in the analysis of inequalities has already been launched on this site, following registration by the New York State Education Department, and other educational activities are being developed.
