Istanbul is a dynamic and important city. Exploring it as well as the rest of the country taught me about cultural differences as well as Turkey's relevance in the global arena of politics. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review

About

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.
