The current Thesis-Based Master's Program in Clinical Psychology only accepts students from the fields of Psychology, Counseling, and Psychological Counseling, and aims to train clinical psychologists due to its nature. Considering the breadth of the field of psychology and the demands received for the program, it is notable that individuals from different fields, especially those working in the business world, have an interest in the science of psychology. They express their interest in receiving education, particularly in areas related to communication, group dynamics, and leadership within the field of psychology. Furthermore, they are willing to engage in studying and conducting research on various topics in line with this interest. It is believed that the opening of the Psychology Master's Program will meet this need, allowing individuals currently employed to professionally develop based on the theoretical foundations they acquire in the program. Moreover, accepting students from different disciplines is expected to bring new perspectives to psychology and contribute to scientific advancement in new areas.
The objective of the Thesis-Based Program is to deepen the knowledge of psychology for undergraduate graduates who wish to conduct individual research and equip them with the necessary theoretical knowledge to prepare for doctoral programs. In the Non-Thesis Program, the objective is to provide graduates from non-psychology disciplines with a new perspective in their respective fields and provide advanced practical and applied training in the field of psychology to all graduates.
Every professional who needs to interact with people in their respective fields can elevate their careers to a higher level by acquiring ethical, humane, and critical perspectives through this advanced education, including a scientific preparatory program, in the field of psychology.
Individuals who graduate from graduate programs can continue their professional and professional lives with an expert title, utilizing their in-depth theoretical understanding and project implementation skills. Additionally, they can pursue academic careers by finding opportunities to work at universities, TÜBİTAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey), or R&D Centers.
