The university was established on 17 March 2006 in Amasya. The
history of the university goes back to 1974, when a teacher
training institution was established in Amasya by the Ministry of
Education. In 1975, the Ministry of Education also founded a
vocational school in Amasya.
In 1982 when the Higher Education Council was established, these
two schools became units of Ondokuz Mayıs University in Samsun.
In the 2011-2012 academic year, our university educates
students through five faculties, including Education, Sciences
& Literature, Divinity,Architecture, Technology and Medicine;
one health vocational school; five vocational schools (Amasya,
Merzifon, Taşova, Suluova and Gümüşhacıköy); and two institutes
(Sciences and Social Sciences).
