Faculties of Arts and Sciences are core elements of basic sciences and are indispensible parts of universities- Basic Sciences, in general terms, refer to natural sciences, language and literature.

Looking at this issue from this perspective, it is possible to reach the conclusion that all universities comprise similar functions; either through “Faculty of Arts and Sciences” or through two separate units as “Faculty of Sciences” and “Faculty of Arts”. However, a cautious observer can instantly realize that this is not the case.

Just as the differences between universities, it is very natural for Faculties of Arts and Sciences to be different from each other.

Comprising the Department of English Language and Literature, Department of Mathematics, Department of Psychology, Department of Turkish Language and Literature and Department of Translation and Interpretation, Near East University- Faculty of Arts and Sciences is unique and it has its own differences, which differentiate it from other faculties of its kind.
