The medium of instruction is in Turkish but the degree programmes are supplemented with foreign language classes. As a result, our students who receive a Turkish education also find the opportunity to develop their foreign languages, enabling them to graduate with a second or third language. Therefore students who wish to continue with graduate studies will acquire an important advantage during their admission processes.
Students enrolled will be able to benefit, on more than one occasion, from the free field trips organized by the department, to witness and experience Cyprusâ€™s natural and historical wealth or beauties. Moreover, the Departmentâ€™s History and Culture Club established by the students organizes a series of successful activities and events. Students enrolled at the department may become members or administrators in the club, playing an active role in its administration.
Our department organizes an â€śInternational EUL History Congressâ€ť every three years. The first of these congresses was held in April 2011. All proceedings and papers delivered at the congress by, distinguished local and international experts in the field who are invited to attend, are compiled into a book.
Students in the department similarly can journey through the details and pages of history accompanied by their theoretical and practical studies, earning a better understanding of historical events and current events. This will enable them to stronger strides into the future.
The history department which has a mission of preparing our students for the future by furnishing them with contemporary knowledge and means also thrives to guide its graduates to bigger and greater goals in life.
Once they graduate, our students can pursue an academic career in any of the various History Graduate Degree Programmes offered by Social Science Institutions around the world. Graduates may also find jobs as history teachers at public and private schools operating under the Turkish and TRNC National Education Ministries, or as public servants at the Turkish Republicâ€™s Prime Ministry Archives, the TRNC National Archives and Research Department.
