Minor Program

Application and Acceptance Requirements

There is no double major program in the psychology department. The only minor program is provided. Applications for the minor program are made to REGISTRAR's OFFICE between dates announced by Registrar's Office.

The quota for the minor program is proposed by the department and determined by the board of directors. Generally, the quota is limited to five people. Application requirements of the minor program are determined by Registrar's Office and related guidelines.

Acceptance for minor programs is decided according to cumulative grade point average (CGPA). As quota allows, a maximum of two students, having the highest CGPAs, for each faculty are accepted. For example, student having third highest CGPA from the same faculty is not accepted to the minor program, if students having first and second highest CGPAs from the same faculty apply to minor program. The aim of this is to announce psychology science to students from different faculties by considering different CGPAs. Moreover, substitute students, whose number is the same with quota limit, are determined. If accepted students do not complete their registrations, substitute students are accepted to the minor program according to their CGPAs. Psychology department courses, that students took before, can be recognized in the minor program.

Graduation from Minor Program

If students do not take the course for two semesters without any permission or excuses, their registrations to minor programs are aborted. To get permission, the student must get printed petition from the secretary of the psychology department and state their excuses about not taking courses in it. If the excuse is approved first by the minor program advisor and then faculty board, the student is considered as permitted for the concerned semester — for example, a student who will participate in the Erasmus program. If the student cannot register to minor program because of course conflict, the student must prove that he or she cannot take any courses.

The students who graduated from their major program are allowed to have an extra semester to complete their minor program. The students, who want to take an extra course in the minor program, can take these courses as NI or with credit.
