Program Description:

Program OverviewIstanbul

Bordering seven different nations (Greece, Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria), Turkey is a fascinating country with many influences. Turkey is a country of diverse cultures, beliefs, ideas, nature, and history and is often considered a nation at the crossroads, not only in a geographic sense but also politically and economically. This eighty-year-old democratic republic has a vibrant business sector and is an active participant in international trade and investment. Turkish culture represents an interesting mix of the east and west with a strong heritage of modernization over the past several decades. Students will be exposed to a highly rigorous and competitive higher education system that has risen to meet the challenges of this modern democracy. Istanbul is located on the Bosphorus Strait, straddling Europe and Asia. It is the only metropolis in the world situated on two continents and, with 11.4 million inhabitants, it is also the most populous city in Europe.
