Settlement Archeology Major Science Program
Compensatory Program Operational Principles
What is Scientific Compensatory Program?
The Scientific Compensatory Program is a program that consists of compulsory courses, which aim to meet the basic archaeology knowledge requirements of the graduate-level education given within the scope of the Settlement Archeology Master and Doctorate Programs of undergraduate students who received education outside the field of archaeology and graduate students who received education outside of the METU Settlement Archeology Master's program.
How long is the Scientific Compensatory Program?
The period given to undergraduate students who have studied outside the field of archaeology to complete the Compensatory Program compulsory courses before starting the Settlement Archeology Master's Program is 1 semester.
2 semesters are given to graduate students who have studied outside the Settlement Archeology Master's Program to complete the compulsory courses of the Scientific Compensatory Program before starting the Settlement Archeology PhD Program.
What are the Scientific Preparation compulsory courses?
The compulsory courses of the Scientific Compensatory Program, which must be completed for the transition to the Master's Program in Settlement Archeology, are as follows:
Fall semester courses:
CRP213 City in History
SA503 Anatolian Archeology
SA581 Basic Concepts in Archeology
The compulsory courses of the Scientific Compensatory Program to be completed in order to transfer to the Settlement Archeology PhD Program are as follows:
Fall semester courses:
SA501 Theory in Archeology
Spring semester courses:
SA510 Spatial Analysis in Archeology
SA512 Environmental Archeology
How to take courses other than compulsory courses during the Scientific Preparation Program?
During the Scientific Compensatory Program, elective courses other than compulsory courses can be taken in Not Included (NI) status. There is no limit for the courses that can be taken in NI status, but some limits may occur during the counting of the courses taken (see MIDDLE EAST TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY SOCIAL SCIENCES INSTITUTE PRINCIPLES OF APPLICATION 08.02.2018 – paragraphs covered by article 1, paragraphs covered by article 2). During the Scientific Compensatory Program, the compulsory courses of the Master's and PhD Programs in Settlement Archeology cannot be taken, even if they are in NI status.
How are the courses taken in NI status during the Scientific Preparation Program count towards the program?
Upon successful completion of the Scientific Preparatory Program, the student starts the main program the following semester. Within one week after the end of the add-drop days of this semester, the required annexes with the Course Submission Transaction Form and Course Submission Application Petition should be prepared by the student and submitted to the Department of Settlement Archeology. MIDDLE EAST TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES PRACTICE PRINCIPLES 08.02.2018 – The paragraphs covered by Article 1, and the paragraphs covered by Article 2 should be taken into consideration during the course substitution process. Although it is the student's legal responsibility to read and understand the aforementioned document, within the scope of this document, in the case of Settlement Archeology Major Program, if more than 2 courses taken in NI status are counted, 1 semester is deducted from the student's maximum education period. As the number of courses counted increases, the number of semesters deducted from the student's maximum education period increases according to the rate specified in the application principles.
