Overview

The Department of History embraces interdisciplinary and comparative approaches. Courses are offered in various subfields in both Turkish-Ottoman and world history. Attention is paid to the latest trends in Turkish and world historiography. The connection between history and social sciences is something that is focused on. In addition to attaining a familiarity with the methodology and resources of history, a literary writing style is something that is also emphasized. Not only do we search for the universal, we are also full of zeal for the local. Although the methods of historical interpretation created in the world at large have provided an irresistable framework, we are aware of our responsibility in developing local and distinctive methods of historiography and introducing them to general historiography. With an erudite academic staff and distinguished students, the Department of History sets out to make a unique contribution to historiography in Turkey.

Career opportunities

Our students pursue successful careers after their graduation in general, not only because of their knowledge of history and languages but also because of the skills and perspectives they acquire while studying history at ŞEHİR. Ability to think critically, to ask meaningful questions, to pursue answers to those questions through careful research, and to articulate sensible answers at the end are skills that prove rewarding in a variety of fields.​
