Department of Sociology at Bülent Ecevit University was founded on 06.06.2012. There are four Assistant Professors and four research assistants by the academic period 2013-2014.

The aim of the department is to educate sociologists who have sociological imagination and approach; who are aware of the fact that Sociology is not an abstract academic field but a part of the concrete world constructed by social agents;  who understand and explain the society they live in and other societies; who know that differences as well as similarities are important; who are aware that Sociology is significant in the development of social policies as well as social theories; who are capable of conducting social research projects; who can see that there are connections between Sociology and social conscience, and who critisize, question, and develop multi-dimensional relations.
