Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of Social Sciences


GeT MA – the German Turkish Masters Program in Social Sciences – is an interdisciplinary two-year double-degree program of the Middle East Technical University (METU) Ankara and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. It offers academic teaching in a large variety of topics in the field of social sciences such as modernization and democratization, Europeanization and migration. While studying in Berlin and Ankara, students deepen their empirical knowledge of political processes using Germany, Turkey and other regions of Europe as examples: "Our aim is to do research together rather than about each other."

The GeT MA program is operated by two top universities: the Department of Social Sciences of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Graduate School of Social Sciences of the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara.

Students spend the first year of study at METU before coming to Berlin to finalize their studies. Graduates receive a Dual-Master of Arts in Social Sciences from both universities.

Due to the international profile of GeT MA the language of instruction for courses is English. However, students take additional language classes in Turkish or German or a third language throughout the academic year in Ankara and may choose additional language courses in Berlin as well.

The program helps students to enrich their academic experience by providing them with the opportunity to undertake a 3-month internship during the summer break before the second year. Thereby, students gain valuable insight into the professional life in Germany, Turkey or abroad.
