Social Sciences

An MA is a master’s degree awarded to students that have completed a program studying humanities or fine arts subjects such as history, communications, philosophy, theology or English. A Master of Arts degree typically requires coursework, research and written examinations.

Social sciences focus on the study of social relationships and human society. Courses within social science prepare students for a wide number of careers that deal with people or systems in public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country, located mostly on Anatolia in Western Asia and on East Thrace in Southeastern Europe. Many Turkish universities (both public and private) are participating in pan-European student exchange programs (Socrates, Erasmus, and the like). Some also have agreements with non-European universities, too.

Cultural Studies is an “interdisciplinary” field concerned with the study of culture in all of its aspects.
