The University provides students with the opportunity of getting a second undergraduate degree (double major) or gaining knowledge at a particular field (minor program) as a student at a different program in addition to their undergraduate programs. The student who completes the double major (ÇAP) program and acquires the right to graduate is given a second major diploma. If the student completes a minor program, a certificate is presented. Students who meet the requirements and wish to pursue a double major can apply to the dean's office at the concerned faculty in their third term earliest, and in their fifth term the latest. The application period for the students who wish to do a minor is not earlier than their third term.
For double major and minor programs, a protocol regarding the additional courses the student has to take, and accreditation between the two departments should be signed between the concerned departments and approved by the senate. Students who provide the Rules and Regulations of Double Major and Minor Program* can be applied for the relevant departments secretaries after application dates are announced on the university website, as shown in the chart below;
