About

The Philosophy Department of Bogazici University accepts applications to its M.A. and PhD programmes once a year, normally in April. Selection of prospective M.A. students takes place in early May and is based on a written examination, academic records and ALES/ GRE score.

Overview

The M.A. degree in Philosophy programme from Bogazici University normally lasts for two years (4 academic semesters) and the PhD for four years (8 academic semesters). It is not necessary for prospective M.A. students to be Philosophy graduates; However, upon admission, non philosophy graduates have to study for a preliminary year, taking a number of remedial courses.Both the M.A. and the Ph.D programme combine an initial year of coursework with the writing of a thesis as of the second year of study onwards.

Before applying, we recommend you to explore the academic profile, expertise and research interests of faculty members. This will help you decide whether you would like to work with a specific professor on a specific topic of your interest.

The Master's Program Coursework:

M.A. students normally have 4 semesters to graduate (not counting the remedial terms), and the maximum (extended) duration they have in the program is 6 semester. These rules stand whether students are registered for every term or remained unregistered for some.Among the 6 courses taken, 4 of them must cover certain area requirements, as explained below.Graduate courses that are opened each term are categorized in three groups:
  • Group 1: ethics, aesthetics, social philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of law.
  • Group 2: logic, philosophy of science, epistemology, metaphysics and ontology, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind.
  • Group 3: history of philosophy.
