The Department of Philosophy at Koç University produces world-class research, scholarship, and instruction in philosophy and its history. Our graduate program offers a wide range of courses and expert supervision in several specializations, aimed at providing students with the skills necessary for advanced research in philosophy and for pursuing doctoral or professional work at leading international institutions.

Our two-year MA program accepts talented students from diverse academic backgrounds, including different levels of prior experience in philosophy. Students receive training in several core philosophical fields, as well as guidance in the production of a high-quality, original masters thesis in a chosen specialization. Additionally, the Department offers interdisciplinary training in two of its principal strengths through two certificate programs, the Certificate in Ancient Philosophy and the Certificate in Mind & Language.
