Overview

The Master Program (MA) in Philosophy at İstanbul Şehir University, which holds an interdisciplinary perspective, has the following objectives:

a) At the university level, our MA-Program aims firstly at providing all graduate students with a sense of philosophical inquiry in order to develop their critical and systematic thinking skills. Secondly, it is geared toward providing them with philosophical and general knowledge and a vision of the history of thought and its problems. As such, the program provides a common ground for a holistic, interdisciplinary and systematic way of thinking for the whole university body.
b) At the national level, our Philosophy Program offers a qualified Master Program in English to an increasing number of graduates from Philosophy Departments in Turkey. It contributes to an in depth understanding of the history and problems of philosophy and science by taking into account the diversity of the cultural and intellectual heritage of other traditions. Thereby it enriches in particular the tradition of Turkish-Islamic thought.
c) At the international scale, our Philosophy Program aims at serving as a bridge that brings together the local and universal body of knowledge of philosophy. Thereby it provides our Master-students with the international standards necessary to participate in qualified doctoral programs abroad. However, it welcomes also qualified students from abroad and provides them with an education in philosophy in Turkey that meets international standards.
