Feature & Definition

The Philosophy Group Teaching Program consists of the combination of four sub-disciplines. Under the "philosophy group" term there are sociology, psychology, logic and philosophy disciplines. During the academic education, the basic discussions of these disciplines on the one hand and their integration with secondary education on the other hand are taken into consideration. Therefore, it is necessary to add "educational sciences" to these fields. The program consists of basic and elective courses. Such a distinction has been made in order for both people to maintain their self-skills and interests, so that they can specialize in a certain field, and to develop an awareness of responsibility. Although the program consists of various fields, it is still believed that a certain specialization with a focus on philosophy, sociology or psychology can be achieved. For this reason, it is considered very important to maintain the elective courses in a consistent manner to deepen in one of these three areas.
