Overview

The curriculum and pedagogical approach of the Department of Turkish Language and Literature at ŞEHİR make it one of the most innovative departments of its kind in Turkey. We aim for a student-oriented program that fosters love and enthusiasm for literature and discourages rote learning. We view our students as active and eager participants in a collective project and discard the barriers between students and professors. We read, discuss, and analyze a broad range of Turkish literature from Fuzuli to Orhan Veli, from Rumi to Ece Ayhan, from Namık Kemal to Oğuz Atay, from Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar to İhsan Oktay Anar, from Nazım Hikmet to Sezai Karakoç.

The literary experience of other cultures as well is very important to us. We know that literature exceeds the borders of one language and appreciation of other literatures deepens our students’ understanding of Turkish literature. They read Eastern and Western literary texts, are encouraged to learn a second foreign language other than English, have scholarships to study abroad for a certain period, and thus learn about other literatures and languages.

Our most important aim is to see our graduates grow into our colleagues. They can also become high school teachers after obtaining the pedagogical formation certificate. Another important feature of our program is the support our students receive to acquire the necessary skills to obtain jobs in the cultural market upon their graduation. We prepare them for positions in publishing houses, private or public cultural institutions, and in such conventional fields as journalism and advertisement or new fields like digital media and Internet content development.​
