MA in Curriculum & Instruction with Teaching Certificate 

Bilkent Graduate School of Education opened in 2000 with a teacher education program offering a master's degree, dedicated to producing well qualified high school teachers in five subject areas: biology, English, mathematics, Turkish language and literature, and physics. Since then we have graduated over four hundred teachers. Most of these alumni were appointed on graduation to teach in prestigious schools in Turkey, and many have since gone on to take their place as leaders in schools, and are already making contributions to the development of education in Turkey. Since 2011, the students who successfully complete their two-year program at the Graduate School of Education also gain International Baccalaureate Teaching and Learning Certificate. The MA in Curriculum Instruction with Teaching Certificate (CITE) program provides an opportunity for qualified students to obtain a teaching certificate recognized by the Ministry of National Education, a teaching-learning certificate recognized by the International Baccalaureate Organization, an MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction, in a combined, full-time, local and international practicum-centered, two-year academic and professional program.
