EYOP604 THEORY AND PROCESSES IN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION 3 3 0
The main aim of this course is to enable students to have a theoretical level of knowledge about administrative theories and processes and to increase their ability to solve current educational administration problems. Scientific business, management processes, bureaucratic organization, formulation of management, old approaches such as dynamic management, human relations, cooperation, rational decision, exchange of services, adaptation in the organization, new approaches such as social system and information theory within modern approaches General system and open system theory, cybernetics and learning organization theories will be discussed. In addition, management processes, decision, communication, planning, organization, coordination, supervision and evaluation, and impact will be both theoretically addressed and problems in implementation and solutions will be discussed.

SOBL601 ADVANCED RESEARCH METHODS 3 3 0
Students will be able to design and implement a research related to instructional technologies and make statistical analysis using SPSS. Research problem is identified and a research and data analysis is performed to produce a report. Students will use scientific research methods to solve a problem related to educational science on the basis of analytical thinking and provide the students who have completed the course content fully the ability to write a report by interpreting the findings obtained in data collection, modeling and data analysis in the process of scientific research methods for the solution of educational problems. Lectures, question-answer, discussion, data collection with survey application, data analysis with SPSS, research topic reporting, project presentation and different sample applications will be covered.

EYOP600 DISSERTATION 0 0 0
PhD dissertation work consists of determining a research topic in the field of study, defining the research problem, writing appropriate research questions and hypotheses, determining the research method for finding answers to the research questions, collecting and analyzing data, writing findings, discussions and implications. Prior to the dissertation work a proposal has to be prepared and presented to the dissertation monitoring committee consisting of three members including the supervisor. After the completion of the dissertation the candidate defends it in front of a jury of five members including the monitoring committee. The dissertation should contribute to the field of study and for setting up a jury the candidate must publish an article from his/her dissertation in a journal indexed by the SSCI, AHCI or SCI.
EYOP695 QUALIFYING EXAMINATION 0 0 0
The qualifying exam is to determine whether the student who completed the courses and seminar has a base for scientific research related to the basic subjects and concepts. A student can take the qualifying exam at the most twice after completing the seminar and credited courses. The qualifying exam consists of two parts: written and oral; and are held on the days and times announced by the graduate committee, within the semester following the completion of the credited courses and the seminar.
