The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is one of the main academic units in CIU and has been running its undergraduate programs since 2003, and its postgraduate programs since 2007.
Our vision is split into the two dimensions of both Art and Science. There is a plethora of staff, programs, and activities to ensure that the faculty fulfils its selected purpose and achieves its goals of providing a modern structure in education. The second target is to be one step ahead in scientific competence when compared to other universities.
The Turkish Language and Literature and Psychology (Turkish) Departments of our faculty have been accredited by FEDEK (Science, Literature, Faculty of Science and Letters, Faculty of Languages, History and Geography Curriculum Programs Assessment and Accreditation Association) for five years. Being the first faculty in Cyprus to have the FEDEK accreditation, which only few institutions in Turkey have it as well, proves the existence of the national and global quality standards.
English is the medium of instruction used in the Department of Psychology, however Turkish is the medium of instruction in the Department of Turkish Language and Literature. Thus, students have the opportunity to study in an international environment. After students graduate, the faculty offers both postgraduate and doctorate programs using modern educational methods and equipment. Students receive support in their studies by taking elective courses in various areas of science, culture, and art.
