Geography helps us to understand how the world has changed with the effect of billions of people and the other creatures and the unending natural cycle throughout the million years. Geography tells us the world that changes and will always change forever. All members of a life that cannot be maintained without the rules of nature; from climate to morphology, from population to tourism, from transportation to geopolitics, from health to settlement; almost all living forms; water, animals, plants and earth are in the study fields of Geography. As the Geography Department at Science and Letters Faculty of Erzincan University, we are a science community that focuses on working for geography science with idealistic opinions and aims to educate geographers who are supposed to work with these idealistic opinions.

Mathematic Department is one of the first founded departments of Science and Letters Faculty, the department was established in 2004. The Department gives education both in day time and evening time. The students who complete their educations at Mathematic Department of Science and Letters Faculty are honored with the title of Mathematician.
