The Özyeğin University Faculty of Social Sciences aims to provide students with a solid foundation about the fundamental elements of our cultural, societal, political and natural life. Our aim is to produce new knowledge and creatively apply the knowledge produced through our vast know-how and inter-disciplinary research in various fields of social sciences. Another goal of our research activities is to turn knowledge into both local and global impact. We see academic freedom as the basis of university education and scientific research. We believe that our faculty’s high-quality academic environment and liberal approach open new horizons for our students’ personal development and their sense of social responsibility. Research on social sciences is a source of guidance for informed and conscious world citizens to contribute to their society and fulfil their responsibilities. We believe that minds that are open to the complex nature of culture and the new fields of discovery in sciences will serve as true achievers in all segments of the society. In alignment with these objectives, the Özyeğin University Faculty of Social Sciences continues to enrich its staff and programs.
