Turkish Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University is a joint program that offers opportunities to study Turkish language, history, and culture. Interested UNC and Duke students can take classes from either institution and can minor or major in Turkish in accordance with their respective institutions.
The courses offered at UNC and Duke can be cross-institutional or students can take the courses they are interested in either institution to fulfill their degree requirements. There are also study abroad opportunities in Istanbul or Europe.
There are a number of academic events and socials throughout the academic semester at UNC and Duke that bring together not only faculty, students and staff in both campuses but also the Turkish community in the Triangle area. The best way to follow them is to sign up for your Middle East Center’s email list.
