Department of Sociology at Istanbul University springs to mind with its 100 years history when talking of Sociology. The importance and place of Department of Sociology at Istanbul University as an institution and school of thought in Turkey with regard to sociology education is indisputable. Later, in 1940s in Ankara at the Faculty of Humanities, in 1960s at Hacettepe and Middle East Technical University, in 1970s at Ege University and Bogazici University departments of sociology were founded. With the foundation of sociology departments at Cumhuriyet, Ataturk, Selcuk, Inonu, Firat, Mimar Sinan, and Uludag universities in 1980s, they became widespread, and they increased in number in the 1990s and 2000s. Today their number reached 100; 76 of which are at state universities and the rest at non-profit foundation universities. The subject of this study is sociology education implemented for 33 years at Cumhuriyet University, a medium-level developed university in Sivas. The aim of this study is to investigate the sociology education in this university which is one of the first examples in Anatolia regarding its structure, quality, trends, activities, and shortcomings.
