Turkish Language and Literature

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences, which our Department is affiliated to, was founded under Atatürk University with the decision of the Council of Ministers numbered 03/5867 published in the Official Gazette dated 16.07.2003 and numbered 25170. With the decision taken at the Executive Board of the Council of Higher Education dated 28.09.2004, it was decided to open the Departments of Mathematics and Turkish Language and Literature within Erzincan Faculty of Arts and Sciences under Atatürk University, and students started to receive education with additional quota in 2004-2005 academic year.

After Erzincan University became a legal entity with the Law No. 5467 dated 01.03.2006, our Faculty became the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Erzincan University. Our department has given undergraduate education since 2004 and the first students graduated in 2007-2008 academic year. Again, in the 2007-2008 academic year, the master’s program with thesis is opened, in which education has continued to be given up to this day.

The student quota for our department has been increased for the 2009-2010 academic year, and students have been accepted to the second education by the Council of Higher Education.

Our faculty library, which has become richer in time, meets all the needs of our students.

Each semester, at least three seminars are given to the students by the faculty members. All kinds of social and cultural activities of the department students are supported by the instructors and necessary guidance services are provided to them.

The reflections of conferences, seminars and symposiums attended by faculty members are conveyed to the students and the staff of the department so that they can benefit from them.
