Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of prior learning is at the beginning stage in the Turkish Higher Education System. Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University and hence the Department of Mathematics is no exception to this. However, exams of exemption are organised at the start of each term at the University for courses compulsory in the curriculum, such as Foreign Languages and Basic Computing. The students who have completed the learning process for these courses on his/her own or through other means, and believe that they have achieved the learning outcomes specified are given the right to take the exemption exam. The students who achieve a passing grade from these exams are held exempt from the related course in the curriculum, and this grade is entered into the transcript of the student.
History
The Department of Mathematics was founded as a major within the Faculty of Arts and Science in 1992. There are two formal education programs in the Department of Mathematics, primary and secondary education. Moreover, there are also Master's and PhD programs in our Department. The Department of Mathematics have five divisions: Algebra and Number Theory, Topology, Analysis and Theory of Functions, Geometry, Applied Mathematics.
Profile of the Programme
The purpose of undergraduate programs in mathematics is rearing people who have mathematical thinking skills, carry out the information learned at program onto problems in daily life and obtain a solution of these problems, are equipped with basic mathematical knowledge and follow the developments of the program. Moreover, programs in mathematics aims to gain scientists of the future who will be capable of doing scientific and original work as well as gain entrepreneurial, self-confident individuals who can use the knowledge and experience learned on department in their professions, and can generate knowledge and pass the it to others.
Exam Regulations & Assesment & Grading
The examination, assessment and grading regulations have been set up for the university by the University Senate and the Department of Mathematics is bound by these regulations. Each course is assessed via a midterm exam and homeworks and assignments, and a final end-of-term exam, with contributions of %40 and %60 respectively. The marking is made out of 100. A student who holds either of the grades (AA), (BA), (BB), (CB), (CC), (DC), (DD) is considered successful in that course.
Graduation Requirements
Students must obtain a grade point average of minimum 2.00 out of 4.00 and successfully complete all the courses (to get a total of 240 ECTS Diploma Supplement).
Occupational Profiles of Graduates
Graduates can be appointed as a teacher of mathematics by the Ministry of National Education when they have pedagogical proficiency and have succeeded from the KPSS(Public Staff Selection Exam), or they can work as mathematics teachers in private schools and training centers. They can also find positions at banks, the computer industries and the various institutions and organizations. The applicants who continue their graduate studies can work as researchers at various institutions or they can be lecturers at universities.
Access to Further Studies
The students who have successfully graduated from the department may apply to post graduate programmes in the field of mathematics here and in other universities, as well as other fields accepting student from the field of mathematics.
