PhD

The Department of Sociology at Koç University offers a PhD program focused on providing students with theoretical and methodological tools to produce original sociological scholarship. Initial years of the program include two required and five elective courses in addition to a number of non-credit courses. In later years, we expect students to concentrate on specialized fields, develop their own research projects, write publishable papers, and finally secure academic positions in teaching and research universities. We accept applications from diverse backgrounds.
