The Summer University (SUN) of CEU is the extension of the university’s mission of promoting research, teaching and social engagement by hosting high-level, research-oriented, interdisciplinary and innovative academic courses as well as workshops on policy issues for professional development in the social sciences and the humanities. The short, intensive courses, taught by a team of distinguished international faculty (including CEU professors), are advertised worldwide primarily to attract advanced undergraduates, graduate students, junior or post-doctoral researchers, teachers, and professionals. The teaching teams' joint expertise is shared with participants in a comparative framework during the summer courses.

These include anthropology, cognitive science, comparative religion, cultural heritage, environmental sciences, gender studies, history, environmental sciences and policy, international relations, cultural, legal, media and medieval studies, mediation, philosophy, political science, public policy, sociology, etc. The program encourages topics in newly emerging fields
