Sabancı University's Graduate Program in History concentrates on Ottoman and Modern Turkish History. It aims to foster fresh, unbiased and critical visions of the Ottoman-Turkish past that are informed by the novel theoretical insights and comparative sensibilities characterizing leading-edge practice in historical studies. In its innovative and comprehensive approach to the field of Ottoman and Modern Turkish field of studies, the History Programs benefits from the wide-ranging professional capabilities of its academic staff as well as from the interdisciplinary make-up of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The separate MA and PhD trajectories in the program are envisaged as constituing a total and integral course of study that promotes research in diverse areas ranging from political and legal to intellectual and cultural history as well as nationalism studies.

The normal duration of the program is two years (four semesters), while students can be enrolled for a maximum of three years (six semesters). This does not include the seven-week Summer Terms offered by approval of the Academic Council; nor does it cover term-leaves of absence. Students have to take and pass a minimum of 11 courses overall (including 9 courses for credit, plus a non-credit Pro-Seminar, as well as the also non-credit MA Thesis course). In addition, within the framework of the said MA Thesis course, they are expected to research and write an MA thesis of around 70 pages on a previously submitted and approved topic.

Any student who has successfully completed his/her coursework within the usual four semesters, but who needs additional thesis completion time, may, upon applying to the Social Sciences Institute, be granted a maximum of two more semesters for this purpose.

Program Requirements may vary according to the year of first enrollment.
