The Chemistry Department was established in 1982. The undergraduate program offered in the Chemistry Department is a professional program that follows the latest developments in the field and is prepared to train competent students in contemporary research and development studies. Our department provides 4-year undergraduate education.
There are five major fields of study at the Chemistry Department: Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. There are five student laboratories in the Chemistry Department: Analytical Chemistry Laboratory, Instrumental Analysis Laboratory, Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, Physical Chemistry Laboratory, and Organic Chemistry Laboratory.
Since the 2012-2013 academic year, starting from the first year students, the English-Supported Turkish Education model has been implemented. In this model, English Courses equivalent to the Preparatory Class (approximately 400 hours) are distributed over four academic years. In addition, our students are graduated with a partial specialization in one of the major fields by choosing one of the modules of Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry or Organic Chemistry in the forth year.
The Chemistry Department is one of the leading departments of our country and our university with its experienced faculty members whose researches cover almost all areas of the chemistry, modern research laboratories, and strong research infrastructure with modern instruments such as NMR, ATR-FTIR, UV-Vis, HPLC, GC, elemental analysis and atomic absorption spectrometer.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates
B.Sc. graduates assume Chemist title. Graduates can be hired in the state laboratories, hospitals, and private organizations.
Assessment and Grading
(1) For each course taken, students are given a letter success grade at the end of the semester/year.
(2) This grade is given by the instructor of the course.
(3) While evaluating the letter grade, a student?s success at classes, mid-terms/final examinations and attendance to classes are considered. The calculation of the letter grade is determined by the approval of the related academic unit and the Senate.
(4) The success grade of a student is calculated over 100 points. This grade is called raw success point.
(5) A student whose raw success point is under 25.00 is directly given an FF grade and the student fails the course. The success grade of a student whose raw success point is 25.00 and above is evaluated by using the methods determined by the board decisions of the Educational Commission of the University and the Senate; with the letter grades of which coefficients and explanations are mentioned below. After this evaluation, it is also possible that the raw success points 25.00 and above may become FF letter grades.
(6) Coefficients and letter success grades are evaluated as shown below:
Coefficients Letter Success Grades
4.00 AA
3.50 BA
3.00 BB
2.50 CB
2.00 CC
1.50 DC
1.00 DD
0.50 FD
0.00 FF

b) The letter grades other than the ones in the clause (a) are:
1) D: Did not Attend the Course
2) G: Did not Attend the Exam
3) E: Incomplete (The E grades which are not corrected until after 3 weeks from the finalization of letter success grades are converted to FF)
4) VZ: Withdrawn
(7) A student whose letter success grade is (AA), (BA), (BB), (CB), (CC), (DC) or (DD) is considered as succeeded the course. However, the CumGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) of the student must be at least 2.00 for graduation.
