General Description

Brief History
Department of Philosophy (within the body of Institute for Social Sciences) offers 3 programs on Graduate levels. "Master of Arts Program" (MA), "Doctorate Program" (Ph.D.), and "Human, Society and Philosophy Program (MA without thesis)."
The theme of the "Master" and "Doctorate" programs is generally adopted on a ´problem oriented´ basis while considering the whole historical process of philosophy in sight.

Being executed by the Philosophy Branch of the Social Sciences Institute and also supported by the Sociology, Psychology and History disciplines, the non-thesis post-graduate study "Human, Society and Philosophy" program go well in harmony with each other in current approach.
