Department of Sociology

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Sociology aims to equip students with critical and analytical thinking skills, and research proficiencies. Our department also aims to help students acquire social responsibility and develop scientific ethical values.

The compulsory courses of our program that focus on the main sociological concepts, perspectives, and social research methods are accompanied by a wide range of departmental and non-departmental elective courses. The elective courses allow students to specialize in areas of their interest and help them develop an interdisciplinary perspective.

Our students gain the main sociological skills not only through the courses, but also through participating in research projects. The department encourages active participation of the students to the researches and research projects conducted by the faculty. Students also gain sociological experience both by conducting their own research projects and by carrying out the compulsory summer internship at different institutions and companies.

The research interests of our faculty members, who have degrees from the leading international and Turkish universities, concentrate on social movements, social change, culture, media, rural development, sociology of food, migration, urban sociology, sociology of art, sociology of gender, and environmental sociology.
