Master’s Program in History focuses on the cultural, intellectual, economic, and social history of the Ottoman Empire and Turkey covering the medieval to contemporary periods. Nevertheless, this focus is neither a narrow nor a limiting one. Several members of the faculty have diverse fields of interest such as gender history, oral history, historical methodology, and environmental/animal history, and are open to working on various subjects with graduate students.
