About the Department

The CIU Department of Psychology was established in 2010, under the roof of the ‘Faculty of Arts and Sciences’, with the approval of YÖK, the Turkish Board of Edcuation. Within the first three years, the undergraduate program was only taught in English. In 2013, our second academic program, taught in Turkish, started to train and educate psychologist candidates who prefer to study in this rapidly growing field.

The CIU Department of Psychology works to advance the science of psychology through high quality research, teaching, and service. The main objectives of the undergraduate program are to develop a multi-disciplinary approach to progress in science which can carry the title of ‘Psychologist’ and which will carry the title of Psychologist, respect for human and ethical values, as well as a focus on research and informative contribution, being able to comprehend the relationship between Psychology and other sciences in scope and methods, psychologists who can critically evaluate the importance of psychology, to define theoretical and practical knowledge of current psychology, to understand new findings and make inferences from them, to analyze, synthesize and integrate them, and to compare and critically evaluate the information. 

 

Educational Opportunities

Our undergraduate program is designed to provide students with advanced theoretical, empirical, and methodological knowledge in specific fields of psychology, and to give them opportunities to apply this knowledge into their specialization areas. Students equipped with the advanced knowledge and skills of their fields of specialization are expected to either proceed for an academic career or to work in the field as practitioners or researchers.

In our neuropsychology lab, research topics such as the study of memory, executive functions, cognitive development and neuropsychological assessment are of priority. Studies carried out in the lab are done with students assigned to projects and are supervised by the department's experienced academics. Also, students are encouraged and welcome to develop and carry out research projects in their field of interest, supervised by academics in the department.

Psychology graduates can work as psychologists in all areas that interact with people such as clinics, hospitals, educational institutions, and in administrative positions in housing and day-care centers or nursing homes. Graduates can become psychologists, researchers, guidance teachers, management psychologists, or work in forensic institutions, family courts, criminal courts, psycho-evaluation centers, corporations, and human resources departments.
