Course Summary

This programme enables students to engage critically with different aspects of Turkish culture and society. The degree offers comprehensive training in the field of Turkish studies. Drawing on SOAS's wide resources in the field, the programme allows students to combine courses to build a syllabus of study according to their interests. It serves as excellent preparation for research. As a postgraduate student specialising in Turkish Studies, you will gain competency in language skills and intercultural awareness and understanding. Familiarity with the region will have been developed through a combination of the study of language, literature and culture (which can include literature, film, music, art and religion) of various parts of the Middle East.

Graduates leave SOAS not only with linguistic and cultural expertise, but also with a portfolio of widely transferable skills which employers seek in many professional and management careers in both business and the public sector. These include written and oral communication skills, attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills, and the ability to research, amass and order information from a variety of sources.

Modules

The module aims to equip the students with a solid understanding of the interaction between literature and history and politics. The main political events of the century are studied through the works selected. By the end of the module students should be able to make a comparative assessment of the literary developments of the periods studied and relate these to the political developments of the time. Students should also be able to view the works within the framework of specific literary theories. With a focus on changing forms of prose and poetry students should be able to demonstrate a fundamental knowledge of relevant literary forms as they are theoretically formulated and more fundamentally, how they are manifested in the Turkish political, economic and social contexts.
