General Description ^
History
Organic Chemistry Program was established in fall semester of 1988-1989 academic year. During this period, Prof. Dr. Kemal Yelekçi was appointed as the first ‘chair of the programme. Current program chair is Prof. Dr. Atilla Gungör since 2000. There are four proffesors and four associated proffesors in Organic Chemistry Program. Education Language is Turkish. Many M.S. and Ph.D. This program is one of the most popular programs offered by chemistry department and welcomes many applicants Theses on polymer, organic synthesis and supramokecules were completed with numerous publications in distinguished journals. Our programme is an active member of LLP/Erasmus Exchange Program and many of our graduate students as well as teaching staff benefit from this exchange.
Qualification Awarded
M. Sc. degree in Organic Chemistry
Specific Admission Requirements
Applicants; must have a B. Sc. degree and must take at least 60 points out of 100 from the Academic Personnel and Graduate Education Entrance Examination(ALES) organized by Higher Education Council Student Selection and Placement Center(ÖSYM). Please check the website of the institute for further details and recent changes. http://fbe.marmara.edu.tr/
Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)
The program is open for all the scientific areas related to Organic Chemistry and all students who have a B.Sc. degree in biology, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, food engineering and materials engineering.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations

Profile of The Programme
Program is composed of two parts: Lectures and Master Thesis. Lectures include detailed topics related to organic chemistry: advanced reaction mechanisms, theoretical-computational organic chemistry, spectroscopic techniques, polymer chemistry and characterization, special topics in organic chemistry, source investigation, report writing etc.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
Graduates can continue their academic career or they can find positions in the quality control, research and development or production departments of medicine, plastics, paint, food and agriculture industries.
Access to Further Studies
Graduates of Master of Organicl Chemistry may apply to doctoral programs which are compatible with the field of Organic Chemistry and other scientific areas. If they are successful they are accepted to the doctoral programs.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
The passing achievement grade of each course should be minimum 65/100. In the calculation of final achievement grade of course, raitos of the grades obtained from the mid-term(s) and final examinations are taken as 50% of each. The grade (S) and grade (U) are used for the Seminar Courrse and Master's Thesis. The grade (S) is given to students who are successful and the grade (U) is given to students who are not successful. The student's standing is calculated in the forms of a GPA and a CGPA and anounced at the end of each semester by the Registirar's Office. The total score obtained by the student in a particular education period is calculated by the summing up individual scores which are obtained via the multiplicaiton of the final achievement grade by the credit of the course. In order to obtain the GPA for any given semester, the total score earned in that semester is divided by the sum of credits. The CGPA is calculated by taking into account all the courses taken by a student starting from her/his registration.
Graduation Requirements
Students must successfully complete at least 21 credit hours of lessons and non-credit Seminar and also prepare and successfully defend a M. Sc. thesis. 9 hours of the 21 credit hours must be taken from the core lessons. Students must give a seminar about their thesis. Also every semester during the thesis studies, students must pass the non-credit theoretical courses.
