Department of Turkish Language and Literature


Turkey is a rapidly modernizing country with both European and Middle Eastern identities. The Turkish people are known for their hospitable nature, Turkish cuisine is famous for its richness and the country offers a rich history. 

Straddling the Bosphorus, its skyline studded with domes and minarets, Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities and the only one to sit literally on two continents (Europe and Asia). Its history can be traced from Byzantium to Constantinople to its place at the head of the Ottoman Empire. Today it hums as the cultural heart of Turkey.  Students can walk the streets where crusaders and janissaries once marched; admire mosques that are the most sublime architectural expressions of Islamic piety; peer into the sultan's harem; and hunt for bargains in the Kapali Çarsi (Grand Bazaar).


Exchange students can apply to stay at the privately run Superdorm which offers coed housing options in 2, 3, or 4-bedroom suites. Individual bedrooms are furnished with a twin bed, a table, an office chair and built-in shelves and cupboards.  No linens are provided. Students can either bring their own or buy them from the Superdorm Management.

Students may also choose to make their own off-campus housing arrangements.
