Social Sciences

PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS OF SOCIAL SCIENCE
Social science education sees young people’s active participation in the society as an important aim. The general aim of Social Science programs, which includes Social Studies, History, Turkish Republic Revolution History and Kemalism, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Education of Religion and Ethics and National Security Information lessons, is to bring up individuals who express themselves, listen to one another, are loyal to Atatürk’s principles and reforms, are aware of the necessity of preserving environment and cultural heritage, are democrat, have universal values. In the studies, the values of the period, information about the period and opinion essays are taken into account. The effects of the events and the facts to be analyzed are examined thoroughly. Each study is based upon certain concepts such as change and consistence, similarity and difference, cause and effect, time/chronology and facts and opinions.

Moreover, Social Science prepares our students for the exams “SBS, YGS and LYS” with its programs that are integrated with lesson progress.
