About

The Master of Science in Political Science and International Relations at METU Middle East Technical University, on the Northen Cyprus Campus provides an advanced and comprehensive understanding of the transformation of global politics and society. The challenges that these transformations pose both to individual states and to global society as a whole is at the heart of this master programme.

Overview

The Master of Science in Political Science and International Relations at METU Middle East Technical University, on the Northen Cyprus Campus will enable students to address the big issues facing global decision-makers: 

  • from regional integration to democratic transformation
  • from the politics of intervention to the politics of reconciliation; from labour market regulation to migration management
  • from human security to military alliances
  • from the complexities of environmental degradation to the social consequences of inequality
  • from international law to human rights.

Those who work at the highest levels in business, government, or the non-governmental and “third” sector, increasingly need to tackle these problems in a systematic and interdisciplinary manner, and the Masters in Political Science and International Relations programme offers students the opportunity to do so.

The programme is aimed at international students, including Turkish and Cypriot students and therefore we welcome applicants from all parts of the world. In addition to comparatively low international fees which nevertheless allows first-class education, we offer a range of scholarships and assistantships which make METU NCC a still more attractive option for international and local students.
