Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities
Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at İstanbul Bilgi University is the academic heart of the university, offering BA degrees in the basic arts: Comparative Literature, English Language Teacher Education, History, Music, Psychology, Sociology, International Relations, Political Science and European Union Studies. In addition to these degree programs, the departments in this faculty offer a wide variety of liberal arts courses as electives to students in departments and programs throughout the university.
The Faculty had 2,200 students enrolled in its various degree programs in 2014-2015 and a teaching staff of 100 full-time and 30 part-time members. The teaching staff, composed of Turkish and foreign professors, is renowned nationally and internationally for its contributions to the various fields of study and for its devotion to teaching. A low student-faculty ratio means that teaching staff members of all ranks are able to allocate a considerable amount of time and effort to students as individuals and to the development of their academic careers at BİLGİ, making every effort to link these with work opportunities after graduation.
