Dean's Message

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities is one of the leading components of Koç University’s commitment to creativity and the advancement of knowledge through teaching, learning, research and staging activities. From Archaeology and History of Art to Comparative Literature, from History to Media and Visual Arts, from Philosophy to Psychology and Sociology, all of our programs aim to enable our students to think more critically and deeply than ever before about ideas, people, communities and societies in the past and present. Our most important goal is to prepare our students for a successful and exciting career by providing them with the intellectual and academic skills that will enable them to think freely, openly and in detail, to conduct research and to communicate.

Our faculty offers a vibrant and multidisciplinary research environment with a variety of creative and innovative high-quality research groups at its center. Our faculty members are internationally recognized for their research as well as their ability to bring their findings to the service of students and stakeholders in tackling local and global challenges. Our faculty offers students different opportunities such as foreign exchange programs, learning foreign languages ​​and gaining work experience by doing internships.

Within our teaching, learning, research and staging activities, we emphasize that a solid foundation in Social and Human Sciences is indispensable for all our students. These diverse activities not only prepare our students for various professions, but also prepare them to be active and caring citizens for life in our increasingly complex world.
