The Koç University curriculum consists of three components: core courses, area courses and general elective courses. While the area courses provide the student with in-depth information about the field; the general elective courses give students the opportunity to adapt their curriculum to their individual needs, abilities, interests and future plans. Although their number varies from department to department, free elective courses constitute an important part of the curriculum and have a very important place in terms of our educational philosophy. These courses can be taken to focus on a specific field or to gain a broad perspective on student’s area of study.
