ANNOUNCEMENT: Congratulations to Duke University's Yossra Hamid who was awarded a Turkish Coalition of America Scholarship for the Duke in Istanbul program. For more information on this scholarship, please see our Finances page.
Duke in Istanbul, based at the strikingly beautiful campus of Boğaziçi University, introduces cultural, historical and religious issues emerging at the intersection of Europe and the Middle East, with particular attention to the unique position of Turkey within the global context. Students take one course with the Duke program director and one course in Turkish language. The remaining two classes are electives chosen from the departments of hiistory, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, economics and political science, among others. The language of instruction at the university is English, so no previous Turkish language study is required. Students live in the university's newest dormitory, the Superdorm. In addition to day trips throughout the course of the semester, the program features at least one weeklong trip outside of Istanbul.
