Pre-School Teacher Education Undergraduate Program (Turkish)
Pre-school Teacher Education undergraduate program started offering education in 2007. The fundamental mission of the four-year program is to graduate well-educated and qualified pre-school teachers.
During the first years of the program, the focus is on theory. Following their fifth term, students gain experience both in teaching and learning, thanks to application courses, research projects and community service applications. Along with courses focusing on practice, students are assigned various homework and projects, all enabling them taking an active role in their learning process.
The 4-year Pre-school Teacher Education Undergraduate Program offers theoretical and practical courses on drama, arts, music and games as well as pedagogic formation courses.
Our courses are offered by prominent academic staff members who give students opportunities for academic tutorials outside class hours. The University has a modern library which offers field-related books, encyclopedias, dictionaries and periodicals for students. The Elementary School Department also offers internship and field practice opportunities for students at various institutions of education.
Graduates of our department pursue employment opportunities at state or private nursery schools, kindergartens and daycare nursing homes operating under the Ministry of Education and Social Services. Our graduates also take an active part in projects aiming to strengthen the pre-school education.
