The English Translation and Interpreting department was founded in June, 2015 under the School of Foreign Languages, aiming to offer education to train students in the field of translation and interpreting. The aim of the undergraduate program is to train translators and interpreters who possess an advanced degree of competence in Turkish and English, who are familiar with the cultures of both languages, and in addition to English, who know at least one foreign language sufficiently enough to be able to use it for translation and interpreting. Our department aims to follow a program which updates continuously, is dynamic and supported with international cooperation and projects.
Our vision is to offer internationally respected translation education in Turkey, to cooperate with prominent national and international universities, institutions and companies in order to share ideas and run joint programs. Our goal is to be dynamic and innovative besides contributing to the scientific world with our studies.
Our mission is to train translators and interpreters who are competent in Turkish and English, who adopt the ethical values of the profession, possess universal values and the ability to synthesize, who know at least one foreign language sufficiently enough to be able to use it for translation and interpretation, who are familiar with terminology in areas such as social sciences, technical science, medicine, literature, political science, economics, and history.
