The Atatürk Institute for Modern Turkish History offers graduate degrees in 19th and 20th century Turkish history. The program emphasizes the emergence, development and current issues of the modern Republic and neighboring countries in the Balkans, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Turkic Central Asia. To this end, the Institute offers Master's and Ph.D. programs exposing graduate students from different backgrounds in social sciences to interdisciplinary and comparative approaches.
The Institute initiates independent research projects; builds up its own document collections and specialized library and archives; and convenes workshops, conferences and symposia designed to further scholarship in the field. It also organizes informal weekly seminars to encourage the formation of an intellectual milieu at the Institute where invited guests meet with graduate students for lively discussions.
Included among the responsibilities of the Institute at the undergraduate level are required courses on the History of the Turkish Republic for the entire student body at Bogazici University.
