ANTHROPOLOGY PROGRAMME INFORMATION PACKET (2017)

Goals and Objectives:

The Anthropology program is based on the assumption that an understanding of today's societies requires comprehensive research and analysis of the many complex cultural dynamics, which underlie all societies. The aim of this program is to provide students with the theoretical foundation, research skills, and basic knowledge of different cultures that will enable them to study contemporary social and cultural problems, issues and phenomena from an in-depth and cross-cultural perspective. Anthropology offers a variety of historical and comparative approaches to the comprehension of cultural and physical forms, ranging from the study of human evolution to the development of an understanding of societies and their symbols. The undergraduate program designed to provide the broad multi-disciplinary foundations upon which the discipline rests. Anthropology often leads to careers in research and/or teaching at both universities and museums. Positions in the other social science fields are also options for graduates.



Level of Qualification:

This department is compatible with the 240-ECTS credit first-cycle programme in physics in the higher education. One can be the “Bachelor of Science in Anthropology” after accomplishing the requirements of the programme.



Admission Requirements:
The student who wants to be registered to the department should be successful in the exam(s) specified by the OSYM (Centre for the election of the students from high schools), within the framework of the university. A student who has already begun an equivalent programme in the country or abroad can also apply for a transfer. The applications for the department are examined before the term begins and each of them is evaluated individually, taking into account the personal conditions. More information about the entrance can be found in the catalogue prepared for the university.
The students who have come from abroad within the framework of an exchange programme approved by the university can take courses given in English. If the student has a profound knowledge in Turkish, then he/she can take any course in the programme of his/her department given in Turkish.

Occupational Profiles:
Our graduates work in industry (especially in calibration laboratories, sections like R&D, software, project development, health industry etc.), find various kinds of jobs in education or can make academic career. We have active collaboration with governmental (such as National Metrology Institute, called UME), industrial and standards laboratories (such as the TSE) in relation to student internments, joint projects, work placements and graduate employment opportunities.


Besides this, since they can carry out a “double-major” or “minor” programme in one of the engineering departments, such as Electrical Eng., Mechanical Eng., System and Industrial Eng., together with the Physics Dept., they can find other opportunities in various areas of application.

Graduation Requirements:

The below-stated requirements are under control by the “course follow up tables - CFT” prepared by the advisor of the student whom he/she can reach during the period of education. The CFT of the student who passed the courses and accomplished the requirements is signed by the advisor and approved first by the Head of Department then by the Faculty Board where the student graduates formally.

The GPA for a successful graduate of a 4-year department should at least be 2.00. All the courses completed are taken into account in calculating this average. Of the students who graduate at most in 9 terms and without any F (failure) or a disciplinary punishment, the ones whose GPA is greater than or equal to 3.50 (out of 4.00) are awarded “High Honour Grade” and the ones whose GPA is between 3.00 and 3.49 are awarded “Honour grade”.

In order for those students who have transferred from another university to enter the honour or high honour list they should not have any F or disciplinary punishment and after having completed courses at Yeditepe University amounting to at least 72 credits, should have a GPA of at least 3.50.

A student who accomplishes the requirements of the programme has the right to have the diploma. The titles to be cited in the diplomas are determined by the Senate.

There appears the signature of the dean or the director of the school on the diplomas given after a major education (4 years) and that of the director of the vocational school or the rector on the diplomas given after a minor education (2 years).



The students taken in the Honour List are also given a certificate to certify this situation together with the diploma.

* Grade Point Averages: The student’s standing is calculated in the form of a GPA and CGPA, and announced at the end of each semester by the Registrar’s Office. The total credit points for a course are obtained by multiplying the grade point of the final grade by the credit hours. In order to obtain the GPA for any given semester, the total credit points earned in that semester are divided by the total credit hours. The CGPA is calculated by taking into account all the courses taken by a student from the beginning of entrance to the University which are recognized as valid by Department in which she/he is registered.
