Established in 1998, Haliç University’s Department of American Culture and Literature aims to introduce students to the development of American culture and literature through both departmental courses and conferences, seminars and art events organized with other universities.
The program of our department includes language courses that form the basis of the culture and literature education for the first two years and general literature courses such as Mythology and Criticism Theories. In addition to these courses, elective courses outside the field that students can choose according to their interests are also included in our curriculum. In the last two years, there are courses that cover the history, socio-cultural characteristics and literature of a multicultural American society consisting of different ethnic groups, and translation and elective courses for professional specialization.
Since our department’s education language is English, it is important that our students know advanced English. For this reason, our students with a low level of English are required to have one year preparatory education. Students who pass the Preparatory Exemption exam can start directly to the first year.
Based on the necessity to cooperate with universities from home and abroad, our department has Erasmus agreements with many universities from countries such as Poland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Lithuania and student and academic staff exchanges are carried out regularly within the framework of these agreements.
After graduating from our department, students can work as an English teacher by obtaining a Certificate of English Language Teaching, can work as a translator, and have the opportunity to work in advertising and public relations, tourism, media, media and press and diplomacy. Our students, who want to continue their academic pursuits, can continue their graduate education at various universities in Turkey and abroad.
