ŞEHİR History Phd Program provides an innovative, flexible, and interdisciplinary context for the study of the past. Designed primarily to prepare students for PhD-level work in history, humanities and social sciences, the program helps students develop their research, writing and teaching skills. In addition, it provides an excellent background for alternative careers in teaching, library and archival work, government service, historical preservation, and allied research fields. The program taught in English is particularly strong in the fields of Islamic and Ottoman/Turkish history.

At ŞEHİR History, you will learn how to work with primary and secondary sources and to interpret them critically. You will also gain a thorough understanding of different schools of historical interpretation and experiment with them. Students are encouraged to build coherent arguments and express their thoughts lucidly and coherently. During the course of the program, you will gain experience in giving oral presentations in an educational setting, making use of appropriate audio-visual techniques and possibilities, and will be provided with the skillset you need for a doctoral program in history or humanities and the pursuit of your academic career.
