The Institute of Graduate Studies and Research is an institution of higher learning where postgraduate and doctorate programs are conducted. The Institute conducts programs in social sciences, natural and applied sciences and fine arts departments. As of 2017 - 2018 academic year, the Institute has 39 masters and 14 doctorate programs. Additionally, there are two “professional doctorate” programs, one in business administration and one in health care management.

The default language of education of postgraduate programs is English. However, classes in Turkish Language and Literature, Psychological Counseling and Guidance, Pre-school Teaching and Turkish Language Education, Nutrition and Dietetics, Educational Administrative and Planning master programs are in Turkish. Turkish Language and Literature and Psychological Counseling and Guidance doctorate programs are also conducted in Turkish.

Postgraduate programs give the students the option of thesis and non-thesis. However, all engineering programs are thesis programs. In the thesis programs, the students take 7 courses and write a thesis, 10 courses in the non-thesis. 2 courses in masters are core (except seminar), the rest are elective, and in doctorate programs all courses are elective (except seminar).

We know that students partaking in postgraduate programs want to make a difference in themselves or pursue an academic career. This is why we have always placed great importance to the quality of our classes and discipline and will continue to do so. It is our belief that this is why the demand for our post-graduate programs increases every year and our student portfolio is constantly enriched.
