FAE Instructor, Unit Head
FBA / FL / FS Unit

Most people consider happiness their most important goal in life. There is considerable controversy about happiness, whether it is the satisfaction of desires, or whether it is the experience of the soul itself. By examining various evidence related to the causes of happiness, we will clarify the nature of happiness. In the process, students will improve their language and academic skills whilst doing research.

As a graduate of Hacettepe University, Department of English Language and Literature (1984), and Bilkent University, MATEFL (1993), I have been working as a language instructor at Bilkent since 1989. After having taught 7 years in BUSEL preparatory program and worked also as a student mentor, I moved to the FAE Program. I also had the opportunity to complete the Trainer Training Course at BUSEL and received BUSEL diploma in Teacher Training in 1998. In 1999 I completed all the courses successfully in the Educational Sciences Ph.D. Program of METU. Since 2009, I have been working as the unit head of the FBA/FL/FS unit in FAE.
