Yasar University Department of Psychology combines psychology, which crosses boundaries and distinguishes itself among sciences by the broadness of its scope, diversity of its perspectives, and dynamism of its progress, with the mission of Yasar University to produce graduates who question, identify problems, and possess social responsibility in addition to artistic sensibility and a culture of design. We aim to guide students in developing not only a solid base of knowledge in foundations of psychology and methods of psychological research, but also skills to apply this knowledge and these methods. With this aim in mind, we complement psychology courses that proceed from basic to applied areas and to actual practice with the foundation courses of Yasar University on research, design, esthetics, projects, and social responsibility, and the opportunity to take courses from other departments in an open-minded and integrative curriculum.
The track with thesis includes 3 compulsory courses, 4 elective courses, a seminar course and the thesis. The degree is awarded upon the successful completion of 120 ECTS worth of coursework including the thesis with a Cummulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of not less than 2.70/4.00.
Diversity of the field of psychology also demonstrates itself in the institutions and contexts in which psychologists work. Persons with a degree in psychology are employed in many different institutions including hospitals, schools, daycare centers, retirement homes, prisons, municipal governments, courts, and police departments.
