Welcome to MEDU
Programs are designed to encompass all periods and genres of Turkish literature. Present fields of concentration are classical literature, literary modernization, and contemporary literature.
The Department of Turkish Literature offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, in addition to a Minor Program. Actively admitting students since 1998, the graduate programs are designed to encompass all periods and genres of Turkish literature. Present fields of concentration are classical literature, literary modernization, and contemporary literature.
Aiming at enhancing the standards of Turkish literary studies, the department requires theoretical, interdisciplinary, and comparative approaches, as well as proficiency in several languages.
The languages of instruction are Turkish and English.
Providing undergraduate students with familiarity with the humanities is an indispensable part of university education. With that in mind, the new minor program in Turkish Literature is intended to provide students with a strong background in the major texts of Turkish literature, and the cultural contexts in which these texts were produced, as well as to teach students how to read literary texts. Students will take introductory courses in the general history of Turkish literature, as well as elective courses on special topics in Turkish literature (time periods, genres, and so on).
The minor courses in Turkish Literature form part of the department's preparatory year for Master's students. These courses are designed for students with no previous experience in literary theory and criticism. It is therefore open to applicants with a sufficient CGPA from any department. Students who are considering a graduate degree in the discipline of literature (Turkish Lit, English Lit, or Comparative Lit) are encouraged to apply.
