Psychology is both a branch of science that enables us to understand human behavior through observation and research, and a field of application where human problems are solved. Therefore, one of the most important features of psychology is that science goes and progresses with practice.
Our goal is to introduce our students to the research and application areas of psychology and to prepare an environment where they can get to know and discuss people and their behavior in a versatile way. From this point of view, the aim of our department is to train students with high reasoning ability who can use their knowledge in a meaningful way together with their thinking ability and who can approach human-related issues in a questioning way.
In the first year of the curriculum of our department, there are basic courses such as "Introduction to Philosophy", "Sociology", "Statistics" and "Physiology" along with the "Introduction to Psychology" course in which psychology is introduced comprehensively. In the second year, basic compulsory department courses such as "Developmental Psychology", "Social Psychology", "Experimental Psychology"; In the third and fourth years, in addition to the compulsory department courses, there are elective courses related to different sub-fields of psychology and non-departmental elective courses. While determining our elective courses, our aim is to ensure that our students have as much command of the field as possible when they are closer to graduation and to help them determine which of the subfields of psychology they have more interests and skills.
Our department graduates; With the thinking skills and psychology knowledge they have gained, they can work in private or public institutions such as kindergartens, nurseries, juvenile courts, detention centers, prisons and detention centers, nursing homes, schools, hospitals, mental health centers, institutions related to physically or mentally disabled people, health centers, sports clubs. . Our graduates; Research companies can also find employment opportunities in the advertising sector, public relations, human resources and mass communication. In addition, those who have a master's or doctorate degree in a certain field can open private workplaces, and if they wish, they can enter academic life at universities.
In short, "Wherever people are, we are!"
