‘History of Turkey’ is a compulsory course for all Bilkent University undergraduate students. This course is designed to encourage students to work in group projects about any topic of their choice that relates to the history of Turkey. Since the beginning of 2011 Spring Semester, students from each department at Bilkent University have been presenting their group projects based on their research topics. Each of these projects shed light on a specific field of Turkish history. These projects are then examined by a panel from Bilkent University and successful projects are chosen to receive awards in the September of the following academic year.
