1 The M.A. program has two main objectives. First to enhance the skills of our graduates as they enter the workforce and second to provide the bases for students who wish to continue an earn a doctorate degree. Our program emphasizes both basic and applied areas of psychology. The focus of the program is on the areas of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, social, developmental, personality and industrial/organizational psychology. These areas were determined based on recent developments in psychology worldwide, and the specific needs of Turkey. Within all areas the emphasis is on research.
