Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) has organized educational programs in its field of study every summer since 2010.

  • Ottoman Summer Program 
    One of ANAMED’s first summer programs in 2010 was “Introduction to Ottoman Epigraphy.” Since 2015 the program has been extended in coverage and teaching staff and continues now as the “Ottoman Summer Program.”
  • Cappadocia in Context Summer Program
    Held for the first time in 2010, the “Cappadocia in Context Summer Program” continued to be offered in 2015 after a two-year hiatus. The program is distinguished by being held “in context,” in Nevşehir, Cappadocia.
  • Ancient Languages of Anatolia
    The “Ancient Languages of Anatolia” summer program began in 2016 and includes instruction in not only Hittite, Akkadian, and Sumerian, but also Luwian , and includes also a cuneiform-tablet writing workshop at the Istanbul Archaeology Museum, making this program unique.

The “Istanbul Through the Ages” summer program, which began together with two other ANAMED summer programs in 2010, was held most recently in 2016.
