about the department

Department Head Prof. L. Hilal Akgül

As the General Education Department, we aim to support the intellectual and academic development of our undergraduate students outside the field they are majoring, and to offer them a multidimensional learning experience that they can bond relationships with different disciplines.

For this purpose, our department offers elective courses that allow our students to complete at least 25 percent of the credits they receive during their major in different academic fields. These elective courses are provided in the fields of basic sciences, basic social studies, critical thinking and writing, arts, creativity, social responsibility and participation.
