HEAD OF DEPARTMENT
Dear students and candidates,
Department of Social Work within the Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences of Istanbul Kent University, aims to develop programs for the differentiating problems of the changing society and to train competent social workers who have a role in the construction of a fair society.
Social justice principles and human rights constitute the foundations of social work education. Starting from these basic principles, our education program consists of theoretical, practical and research courses. In the implementation of the training program, it is aimed to reflect the theoretical approaches to daily practices and enrich the education with field studies. Our department, which contributes to academic discussions in the field of Social Work, organizes these activities with our students. With the cooperation agreements that we have made a series of universities in Europe, our students’ participation in study abroad programs is also provided. Graduates of our department, which has an academic staff consisting of associates who are competent in the field of Social Work and internationally known for their academic studies, will be sought-after professionals in working life.
