The Master of Arts in International Relations at Yasar University pays special attention to ensuring that its graduates are not only able to apply theoretical thinking to analyzing and evaluating a wide range of issues in the field of international relations but also possess the tools necessary to conduct solid scientific research.
The compulsory courses offered during the first two semesters such as international relations theories and research methods reflect this focus. The students are then able to choose from a wide range of courses available, and concentrate their studies on topics of their choice.
Program Objectives and Structure
The field of international relations no longer deals exclusively with inter-state relations but also includes the analyses of interactions among societies, civil society organizations, transnational actors, and individuals. The Department of International Relations, thus, seeks to train its students to develop the necessary skills to assess the multilevel networks of relations on the global scene, conduct interdisciplinary research with theoretical and thematic explanations, and adapt themselves to the dynamics of ongoing globalization.
To that end, the Master of Arts in International Relations Program pays special attention to ensuring that its graduates are not only able to apply theoretical thinking to analyzing and evaluating a wide range of issues in the field of international relations but also possess the tools necessary to conduct solid scientific research. The compulsory courses offered during the first two semesters such as international relations theories and research methods reflect this focus.
