Learn Turkish at UT Austin!

The Department of Middle Eastern Studies offers a minor in Turkish and opportunities for undergraduate students to study Turkish/Turkey within its BA degrees in Middle Eastern Studies, Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures, and Islamic Studies.  Students majoring in International Relations and Global Studies, Government, History and Economics often choose to study Turkish. Students interested in advanced degrees concentrating on Turkey may enroll in programs such as Middle Eastern Studies, Government, History, Comparative Literature, Ethnomusicology or Anthropology.  Masters students in the UT Center for Middle Eastern Studies Dual Language Track Program often choose Turkish as one of their two Middle Eastern Languages.

All students taking Turkish have the opportunity to study the language for 3 years with the goal of achieving a minimum of advanced proficiency. The first 1.5  years of the language learning focus on building vocabulary and grammar. In the 4th semester, students transition to content classes taught entirely in Turkish.  Students may continue to take Turkish-language content courses in their 3rd (or even 4th) year or may choose to study abroad in Turkey or Azerbaijan.
