►As it is known, the name of the programs ending with “Teaching” in Graduate Programs of our Graduate School was changed to “Education”.

Our students enrolled in Teaching Programs are required to choose the programs ending with “education” while enrolling in the Student Information System.

Also; Since the name of the Educational Administration and Supervision Program has been changed to Educational Administration, the course registration will be made in the same way.

Students who will choose a course from the Graduate School Joint Program mentioned above must choose from the -NON-CURRICULUM/NON-DEPARTMENT COURSES- menu on the SIS course registration screen.
