Master

An MA or Master of Arts degree is obtained by students after completing a one- to two-year program studying History, English or other fine arts or humanities subjects. MA studies are most often a mix of research and coursework.

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.
