A RESEARCH ON THE COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTS FOR THE COMMON COMPULSORY COURSES ON ASSOCIATE’S DEGREE AND THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
The interest and success of the students on compulsory courses which have been mandatory in higher education for many years, are constantly being discussed and various studies are being carried out and suggestions are made to increase the success. Ataturk's Principles and Revolution History lesson aims to create a social history awareness in common compulsory lessons, aiming to provide correct and beautiful use of our mother tongue with Turkish Language lesson and trying to establish the ability to communicate with at least one foreign language with Foreign Language lesson. In this study, two departments selected from the Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Hacettepe University and a vocational high school from Hacettepe University were selected as pilot units. The students in this selected educational programs were asked various questions about the common compulsory courses and tried to measure the success status and the interest in the classes. Also the successes of associate’s degree and und undergraduate students are compared. As a result of the studies on the questionnaires, it is understood that there are many problems related to common compulsory courses. At the beginning of these problems, these lessons seem to be insignificant and sufficient interest cannot be achieved. In the light of these and similar results, the opinions of the students about the common compulsory courses should be evaluated by the competent institutions of our state and should be tried to be solved by the supervisor, educator and student collaboration evaluation studies.
