TURKISH EDUCATION DEPARTMENT

Aim

The aim of the Turkish Education Program is to train Turkish teachers that will take charge in secondary stage of the primary school. We are expecting our students to be fully equipped with knowledge and abilities a teacher can have. For this purpose, we are training students that can: think and set thinking about language in general; be aware of the fact that language is a science besides its cultural and social aspects; research about the history and richness of their own language; use Turkish in an appropriate manner; be enthusiastic to learn about modern Turkish literature as well as the ancient; interiorize and transfer Turkish language’s rules in the future to their own students. We are also expecting our students to have a contemporary instructor profile that adopts ethical values.

 

Undergraduate Program in Turkish Education

The undergraduate program in Turkish Education consists the teaching of general field knowledge, pedagogical formation and general cultural knowledge. Besides the courses, students are given computer, basic foreign language (English) and drama trainings. Students adapt to the university through Transition to University Life Course in the first semester and realize social responsibility projects through Community Service Applications Course in the fifth semester. The duration of the program is 4 years. Educational language is Turkish.

 

Recruitment of Graduates

Graduates gain the title of “Turkish teacher” and can work with this in official and private schools affiliated to the Ministry of National Education. They also have the opportunity to become academicians by attending post-graduate education. Besides they can work as Turkish teachers in foreign educational and cultural institutions, in world Turkish centers, and in private and official organizations related to Turkic republics. They may work as language experts in institutes, research centers, libraries and museums; and also as editors and redactors in press-publishing organizations.
