Faculty of Arts & Sciences

Arts and Sciences Faculty is one of the three faculties established in 1986, when the Institute of Higher Technology was transformed into a state university under the name of Eastern Mediterranean University. While the faculty offered education only in physics, chemistry, applied mathematics and computer fields during its first years, the number of students receiving instruction at six undergraduate, nine master’s and four PhD programs offered by Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Psychology, Turkish Language and Literature, Translation and Interpretation and Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences departments has reached 1130 during the 2013-2014 academic year. The faculty has produced 3698 graduates since its establishment.

With 28-years of experience in education, its academic staff, research facilities, international profile and life-long development philosophy, our faculty endeavors to take its well-deserved place amongst the best faculties in Eastern Mediterranean University as well as becoming the best Arts and Sciences Faculty within the region. The fundamental mission of Faculty of Arts and Sciences is to offer high quality education to students receiving education either within the same faculty or in other faculties, become a respected and competitive faculty in all the core disciplines of the arts and sciences, to contribute to the ongoing developments in all related disciplines and reflect these changes in the curricula in order to graduate first-rate students in the international arena. In line with Eastern Mediterranean University’s “For Your International Career” philosophy, the faculty aims to increase both the international student population in undergraduate and postgraduate programs and collaborations between the faculty and other international universities, institutes and research centers. Our graduates successfully pursue academic studies and employment opportunities in the USA, Australia, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Upon their admission to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, students are offered modern undergraduate programs which are compatible with the requirements of the current age. Mathematics and Computer Science and Molecular Biology and Genetics programs are delivered in English whereas the medium of instruction in Turkish Language and Literature Program is Turkish. The faculty also offers two identical Psychology undergraduate programs delivered in English and Turkish. Translation and Interpretation undergraduate program not only gives the students the opportunity of developing themselves in Turkish, English and French but also equips them with necessary skills for translation theory and techniques as well as simultaneous conference translation. All undergraduate curricula is prepared and reviewed in line with the principles and values specified as part of the Bologna Process determined by the Leuven Declaration in 2009. On completing their undergraduate studies, our students find themselves ready and competent to find jobs in the most sought-after professions according to their knowledge and skills, and can study further to become faculty members in their related fields at universities after completing their graduate studies in the fields they have chosen, or they can be employed as teachers upon completing their pedagogical formation program.

The multi-dimensional research activities help the Faculty hold a significant place in terms of the number of publications produced, and it also continues to contribute to the universal knowledge of science and arts with its continually upgraded infrastructure. General Chemistry, Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetics, General Biology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, 2 Psychobiology, 3 Computer, Translation, Physicochemistry, Instrumental Analysis, Organic Chemistry and Photovoltaic and Thin Film Technology laboratories provide a comfortable environment for researchers to carry out their studies and projects. Along with postgraduate research, the laboratories support students in improving their experimental and research skills. Faculty academic members, especially academics in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry departments, receive important project support from prominent scientific organizations such as TÜBİTAK and have important contributions to research through articles published in international journals covered by SCI, SSCI and AHCI. In line with the demands of the current era, the faculty puts special focus on interdisciplinary research in the areas of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
