Department Chair: Assoc. Prof. Serkan Özel
The Department of Primary Education offers four-year programs leading to a bachelor’s degree in Preschool Education, Mathematics Education, and Science Education. The department also conducts a graduate program leading to an M.A. degree in Primary Education.
The Undergraduate Program in Preschool Education aims to impart knowledge and develop skills of those who will be working in various environments with children up to the age of 7 years. The aim is not simply to train preschool teachers but also to educate competent professionals who will be working with the families of young children, with social institutions related to health and education, and with the community to promote community development. The program combines theoretical training and field experience and offers a vision based on current research. There is a double-major program in Preschool Education and Guidance & Counseling.
The Mathematics Education and Science Education programs are designed to equip students with the basic knowledge, skills and competency to become effective teachers in the primary education system. The programs also envisage providing students with knowledge beyond their own subject area, enabling them to take on roles in various aspects of primary education.
