Masters Programme

Entrance Requirements

Entrance to masters studies in the Department is conditional upon the satisfaction of several criteria. The Department organizes both written and oral exams for the applicants to test the level of their academic performance in sociological theory, research methodology and their general awareness of current issues. However, only these holding a bachelors degree with an average academic score of 2.5 out of 4 (or its equivalent) in the social, political, administrative, economic, and psychological sciences or humanities can apply for postgraduate masters studies in the Department. These individuals are required to have obtained a minimum of 55 points from the Postgraduate Study Exam (ALES), and 60 points or equivalent from the Foreign Language Exam(s) of KPDS or ÜDS, both of which are organized by the Student Selection and Placement Centre. Alternatively, the applicants may take TOEFL or IELTS exams in which case they need to obtain a score of 58 and 6.5 respectively. Individuals who fail to provide documentary proof of the level of their proficiency in a foreign language (usually English, French or German) may be granted one year of leave to improve their foreign language, provided that they have passed the Departmental entrance exam. The applicants can include reference letters in their application files if they wish.
