In conjunction with the CEU Summer University (SUN) the CPS organizes summer courses for young faculty, researchers and professionals, postdocs and advanced doctoral students. These courses are related to the research programs run by the CPS and also utilize CEU's recognized regional expertise and our wider network, involving internationally acclaimed faculty worldwide and creating a space for mutually enriching dialogue.
In cooperation with the CEU Curriculum Resource Center, CPS occasionally organizes one-week course design workshops for university teachers on topics connected to research and teaching activities at CPS. CPS was also a founding member of the Public Integrity Education Network, a Tiri initiative, which aimed to assist curriculum development in anti-corruption.
From time to time CPS offers advanced courses for faculty and researchers, postdocs and advanced doctoral students to inspire them to introduce new topics in their teaching profile and research agenda by bringing to their attention cutting edge literature in selected themes and enriching the comparative content of their knowledge.
In September 2004, the Center for Policy Studies launched CEU's Master of Arts program in Public Policy (MPP). Following two successful academic years, which saw application and student numbers significantly grow, and the consolidation of a group of core faculty, the program continues operating within the newly founded Department of Public Policy. Cooperation between the Department and the Center remains intensive on joint events and research collaboration. CPS researchers offer courses and supervise students in the DPP.
