MA Programe in History, Biligi University Istanbul [DL: 12 September 2011 ]‏


ISTANBUL BILGI UNIVERSITY MA PROGRAM IN HISTORY

Students will be admitted for the 2011/2012 academic year. The Master's Program aims to provide students of diverse backgrounds a firm academic foundation geared towards conducting original research in the field of history with an emphasis on interdisciplinary methods and approaches. Application to the program is not limited to students with undergraduate degrees in history but is also open to those from related fields in the social sciences and humanities. International students are likewise encouraged to apply. Teaching and coursework are conducted in English. For those students who has a high degree of proficiency in a language other than Turkish but have only an intermediate command of English, deferment of admission for a year will be permissible contingent upon taking steps to acquire the necessary level of English during that year.

The two-year master's program focuses on the cultural and intellectual history of Turkey covering the medieval to contemporary periods. Since the field of cultural and intellectual history is particularly underrepresented in graduate programs in Turkish universities, the History Department at Istanbul Bilgi University offers a unique program both in terms of diverse and challenging coursework as well as research opportunities in the above field. With an emphasis on interaction with the teaching staff, the program encourages students to work in close collaboration with their advisors in both the classroom as well as on individual research projects.

It is possible to be admitted to the program as a special student.
Scholarships are available.
