GCU introduces four-year BS in Turkish Language and Literature

BS Turkish Language and Literature

The Government College University (GCU) Lahore announced the launching of a new BS degree program in Turkish Language and Literature. Starting in Fall 2023, the four-year BS program has been approved by the university’s Academic Council and Syndicate.

Talking to the media, Professor Dr Asghar Zaidi, Vice-Chancellor of GCU, laid the importance on the research and understanding of Turkish culture, saying that it has played a significant role in the lives of Muslims in South Asia.

In addition to the curriculum, Prof Zaidi said, GCU is also planning to sign Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with Turkish universities for an exchange program. This initiative will allow students in the BS program to visit Turkey and learn the Turkish language at Turkish universities. Furthermore, GCU will host faculty and students from Turkey, and professors from Turkish universities will be invited for talks, seminars, and conferences at the department.

The Vice-Chancellor also emphasized GCU’s strong tradition of teaching languages and literature, with premier Departments of English, Urdu, Arabic, Persian, and Punjabi. To further strengthen its academic offerings, the university is planning to initiate degree programs in other regional and global languages.

“This BS program in Turkish Language and Literature will be a significant step towards strengthening the brotherly ties between Pakistan and Turkey,” Prof Zaidi concluded.

Recently, the Department of Translation Studies was also established at GCU.
