The Language Institute will be offering its intensive eight-week sequence in Modern Turkish in summer 2014. We anticipate that tuition scholarships in the amount of $500 to $2,300 per course will be available. (The levels are TURK 001, 002, and 003, and the courses will be listed on the Schedule of Courses under LANG 196A and B, and 296A.)

Turkish may not leap to the front of your mind as a language with a great strategic and historical significance, but, in fact, a knowledge of Turkish gives you access to a number of important and dynamic cultures, political systems, and economies, each of which is becoming increasingly important in the twenty-first century.

Studying Turkish also offers entry into to the rich cultural and religious heritage of Turkey and can open research opportunities in the field of Eastern European studies, Ottoman history, and archeology. The study of modern Turkish also provides a foundational skill for individuals interested in learning classical Ottoman Turkish.

If you are intrigued, we invite you to join us for the introductory Turkish language sequence offered at University Park this summer. To learn more visit our Language Institute at Penn State website.
