What is the Foundations Development Program?
Foundations Development Program at Sabancı University is a unique common courses design for all undergraduate students that is inspired by core-curriculum and liberal arts traditions in higher education. All Sabancı University students need to complete these common courses, or the University Courses, irrespective of their future field of specialization.
Sabancı University is the first university in Turkey with such a common courses design and it is also one of the few around the world which also combines it with a major declaration/specialization after-enrollment system. Foundations Development Directorate coordinates the University Courses design by bringing together faculties and the School of Languages for the fulfillment of our educational goals.
