International Relations

About the Department

The main objective of the International Relations Department is to provide students the knowledge to enable them to resolve both national and international conflicts and to analyse the changes theoretically. The changing dynamics of international relations are interpreted multi-dimensionally by up-to-date discussions on the phases of international relations and co-operation in the globalised world. Our curriculum, updated to incorporate international relations and disagreements, uses techniques that involve discussions of problems using both national and global approaches.


Educational Opportunities

Our program is supported by courses in International Organisations, Comparative Politics, International Security and the Theory of International Relations. In the fourth year, students study the solution of problems and unsolved conflicts in current international systems by attending courses in International Conflicts, Turkish Foreign Policy and Seminars.Aiming to improve its students’ ability to provide analytic knowledge, the International Relations Department studies the changing systems of international relations by coming up with research topics and collective work groups. Our Department employs many researchers and foreign policy experts to help students follow recent and national matters. It holds global and national conferences and workshops on ‘Diplomacy Days’. A Social and Strategic Politics Research Centre has been founded in order to centralise the academic studies carried out in the department.
