STUDY ABROAD AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY’S MCGHEE CENTER IN ALANYA, TURKEY
Georgetown University offers an exciting opportunity for Georgetown and non-Georgetown students who wish to study abroad in Turkey. This program introduces students to the ancient, medieval and modern Eastern Mediterranean Studies focusing on the crossroads between civilizations in the east and west.
Georgetown University’s McGhee Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies is located in Alanya, a town of 120,000 inhabitants on Turkey’s southwestern coast, within the walls of a thirteenth century Seljuk castle. The academic building is a 200 year old villa surrounded by gardens and perched on a promontory 600 feet above the Mediterranean Sea.
The Center hosts a spring semester program starting with a two- week orientation in Istanbul and Ankara. During the semester, students participate in weekend academic fieldtrips, adding a unique experiential dimension to classroom reading and lectures. Students will also participate in a mid-semester two week study tour to Syria.
The curriculum consists of five courses including Turkish language that is offered at all levels. A Georgetown University transcript is generated at the completion of the program.
The Alanya program is limited to 16 qualified students. Applications are reviewing on a rolling basis after November 1. The program fee includes most meals, lodging, books, the orientation in Istanbul and Ankara, the Syria study tour, and all transportation cost except for the airfare to Turkey.
