Chairman's Statement

Dear Students,

Dear Alumni and Friends,

I would like to welcome you to the Department of Political Science and International Relations. Our department's core mission—to train students who will have a critical understanding and ability to take part in the initiatives to improve community's socio-political conditions—remains strong.

We have just recieved approval from Turkish Higher Education Council for our new masters program in Diplomacy and Conflict Management. The department will start accepting students for the program in Fall 2018.

During Spring 2018 many of our faculty members have engaged in impressive research and conference activities. The Department has organized several academic events for the students and the faculty members. Our department has also been broadening its cooperation with several programs in the overseas universities in order to provide new avenues for our students and the faculty members.

The invaluable support from our alumni and friends has been a driving force for our motivation and success. .

Ahmet Sözen
Professor and Chair
