In this way, it is aimed for students to have both the basics of psychology at an international level and to acquire the practical skills they will use in their professional lives. The application of this education model in our department is as follows:

1. All the class materials (books, articles and other materials) that will be used through the 4 years are in English .
2. The students will be provided with supplementary English courses for all 8 semesters in 4 years.
