The Master's in Literature, Culture and Society draws on the fields of literature, cultural studies and intellectual history, and provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to specialise in a major European literature in its broader intercultural contexts.

Literature and culture from a global European perspective

For centuries, literature has played – and continues to play – an important role in our understanding of how society is continuously being shaped and re-shaped. Literature is often associated with intellectual training and skills, Bildung, and (global) citizenship. In this programme, you are encouraged to creatively explore the field of European literature and culture in a broad sense. We address the role these pieces of literature play in increasingly globalised and transcultural contexts. Europe, in this sense, is not just a designated continent, but rather a specific lens on a set of global relations.... [-]

Şehir-Sociology’s vision is based on the concept of the global articulation of a local perspective. It aims to creatively combine sound education with cutting-edge research, high academic standards with sensitivity to social issues as well as the global with the local. From this global perspective, its mission is two-fold: to offer its students an intellectually-satisfying and interdisciplinary education, and to produce sophisticated knowledge based on rigorous methods and original research. It thus aims to contribute to the accumulation of refined knowledge, instead of repeating what has already been produced. To this end, Istanbul Sehir University MA Program in Sociology offers to those who have questions in mind and social responsibility in character a free research environment and a rich intellectual atmosphere where free thinking can flourish....

The MA in Economy and Society track was designed to help students develop an understanding of how social preconditions may both limit and stimulate change from non-market to various types of market economy. The seminars focus on the interdependence between the economic and social systems at the time of a deep transformation. Thanks to courses like Political Economy of Policy Reform, Economy, and Society (I and II), Management for Eastern Europe, Seminar on Corruption and Sociology of Institutional Change, students are able to observe theories “in action”, as instruments for achieving a better understanding of the socio-economic world.

The Kean University Master of Arts in Sociology and Social Justice program prepares students to address inequality based on identity categories such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability. It is the first of its kind in the state and the region. Social justice is the study of how social advantages and disadvantages are distributed, the relation­ship between social identity and inequality, and the practice of reducing the gap between them at local, national, and global levels. It is a perspective for understanding and for action. The program further seeks to inspire a commitment to democracy and firm principles of egalitarianism and equity that will prepare graduates for positions in research, teaching, public service, business and other positions where they may serve as agents of social change. The program emphasizes the interplay between theoretical and applied approaches in sociology, and provides students with an integrated culminat­ing practicum and master’s thesis experience. Successful graduates from our program will complete a total of 36 credits (including the practicum and the master’s thesis supervision). Our ideal student should have the passion to pursue jus­tice, the ability to argue for those who cannot, the knowledge to understand public issues, the courage to challenge op­pression, and the humanity to bring people together for a noble cause....

The MA History program Religion and Society focusses on understanding the changing role of religion(s) in society from Antiquity up until the present. Courses deal with questions such as: what is the relationship between religion, politics and society since Antiquity? How can we understand the gradual separation of Church and State and new forms of worship, dissent and devotion since the western Middle Ages? And what has been the impact of broader processes such as secularisation, globalization and colonialism?
