*This study was presented in oral presentation at the VIII International Education Research Congress held in Manisa, Turkey, on May 9th, 2018. It was supported by Düzce University Scientific Research Projects Commission (Project no: 2018.10.01.684).
The purpose of this study is to conduct a needs analysis study that will form the basis for Curriculum and Instruction graduate programs. It aims to determine the competences that graduate program graduates should have, and to revise the courses and contents taught in graduate programs based on these competences. Designed as a qualitative study, it employs the Delphi technique as its data collection method. The researchers achieved their consensus on the graduation competences of Curriculum and Instruction graduate programs over a series of three rounds, and then concluded it with the Delphi application process. The criteria sampling method was used in the study. The criterion to be used was defined as "being a faculty member in the field of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction". The Delphi panel was formed by 20 academics who agreed to participate in this study. We used content analysis in the analysis of the qualitative data obtained in the first round. We then employed central tendency measures (i.e. arithmetic mean and median), central distribution measures (i.e. standard deviation and interquartile range), and percentage of agreement calculations for the analysis of the quantitative data obtained in the second and third rounds. The study has revealed 11 competence areas comprising 157 sub-competences.
