Welcome to the Psychology Department at İstanbul Bilgi University! I would like to start out by mentioning how lucky we feel as a department. Since 1997, we have been educating students who come to us because they are passionate about studying psychology and who have made a conscious decision to do so. Our various graduate programs are also increasing the attraction to our department. Since 2005, we have been running a highly reputable and competitive Clinical Psychology MA program that provides excellent training to individuals wanting to specialize in clinical psychology. As of the 2012-2013 academic year, the MA program will also have a track in child-adolescent psychotherapy, the first of its kind in Turkey. In 2011, we also instituted an Organizational Psychology MA program with the goal of training experts in an area which is gaining increasingly more recognition in Turkey. This program is run in collaboration with Alliant International University in the US, and in addition to an MA degree from İstanbul Bilgi University, offers students the opportunity to receive a certificate from Alliant University.
