Accordingly, the effectiveness of the undergraduate program can only be specified by Turkish language teachers evaluating the program as a result of situations that they have encountered in their profession. In this research, 30 Turkish language teachers serving in the central districts of Karatay, Meram and Selçuklu in Konya province were asked to evaluate Turkish Language Teaching Undergraduate Program which has been renewed by considering the fields that they need and use in their professional lives.
