Established in the 2013 academic year, the Graduate Program in Museology is a two-year program leading to an M.A. degree. Students may complete the program with or without writing a thesis. The language of instruction is Turkish. The program represents a new departure for Museology in Turkey, in that it offers graduates the chance to take one academic year of foundation courses in museology, and subsequently to specialize in whatever areas they choose.
