Welcome to the Turkish and Ottoman Studies Program in NELC. I am excited to say that our program boasts the largest undergraduate enrollments in the country. We also offer extensive preparation at the Masters level (in NELC) and the Ph.D. level (in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Near and Middle Eastern Studies). Our course offerings include language instruction in Ottoman and Modern Turkish, as well as many topical courses on historical, social, and cultural topics. The Turkish Studies Program at UW is also integrated with the Central Asian, Middle Eastern, and Russian Studies Programs. This makes it highly interdisciplinary and unique among Turkish Studies Programs in the United States.
