Dear Psychology Students,
The field of psychology, which is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, is developing at an exponential rate as a discipline. This has allowed psychology to be a rich science in terms of subfields.
Considering the richness of the field in terms of subject matter, some prerequisites for achieving the goal of providing undergraduate education and training in psychology are of priority. Among these prerequisites are; to adopt an interdisciplinary approach, to have a qualified and rich academic staff, to have the most up-to-date and advanced educational hardware and software, to have the ability to use the said feasibilities effectively and efficiently, to have curricula and programs in which students can perceive all aspects of the field of psychology and to apply commonly used participatory (interactive) training methods and techniques.
If all these prerequisites are met, a contemporary undergraduate program emerges that can be competitive at national and international level in terms of education quality.
Our students who graduate from such an undergraduate program will be able to be employed in the applied fields of psychology and gain an advantageous status. In addition, it will be easier for them to be accepted to universities’ postgraduate education institutions and it will be possible for them to reach an academic career goal.
As Istanbul Kent University Psychology Department, while we are entering the 100th year of our Republic and the second quarter of the 21st century, we are in the desire, excitement and expectation of being able to provide our students with a psychology education and training that is of high quality and quantity.
I wish you great success.
