HISTORY

The English Language Teaching Programme affiliated to the Foreign Languages Department in Faculty of Education at Sakarya University takes its first steps in the academic year of 2010-2011 with the 50 BA students enrolled through the university entrance exam. In 2013-2014 Academic Year, the department bids a farewell to the first graduates, who were fastidiously and keenly educated. The first 10 in-service teachers having recently graduated from the department have already begun to work at state schools and some other private language teaching centers, and do the academic staff members credit. The MA programme offered in cooperation with the Department of English Language Teaching at Kocaeli University initiates its studies with 5 Turkish and 1 foreign students accepted to the programme. Our MA programme produces its first graduates in 2013-2014 Academic Year, and accelerates its academic growth. The Department of Foreign Languages having covered a significant distance in a short term aims to contribute more to the academic world soon as a student-oriented unit that has been updating itself regulary according to the needs of the contemporary era and perpetuating its educational services at international standards.
