The American Studies Certificate Program offers an interdisciplinary focus on American culture. Bogazici University students may participate in the program as of their third semester. They are expected to complete the 21 credit program by the time of their graduation, with a cumulative average of 3.00 or above. There are no prerequisites for the two required courses.

The program consists of a required orientation course (AS 250) and five other relevant courses selected from the departments of History, Political Science and International Relations and Western Languages and Literatures as well as AS 412 (a research and writing course leading to a thesis to be defended before a jury of three faculty members from different disciplines.)

*** Important Note: Not all the courses are offered every semester. So, it is the student’s responsibility to keep track of the courses opened by the departments. Provided that you consult the program coordinator, there is flexibility in the order in which you take the orientation and the research and writing course.
