With increasing globalization being experienced all around the world, to have an awareness and understanding of current international affairs is becoming more and more important. Besides the relations among the states, the relationships between states and other international actors such as nongovernmental organizations or transnational bodies and the relations among these non-state organizations form the focus of the discipline. The main conceptions of international relations; power, security, foreign affairs and claims of authority and liberty; are critically analyzed by students enabling them to make new explanations and comparisons. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the field, the scope is not limited to these issues and knowledge on economics, sociology, psychology and statistics is also aimed to be generated at the end of an undergraduate degree in the department. Besides the abilities of explaining, comparing and analyzing, the students are trained to attain the ability of questioning; that is asking about ‘how’s and ‘why’s when they confront a certain situation. Equipped with this abundance of knowledge and such enriching qualities, the graduates of the program will be able to easily obtain job opportunities in different areas such as diplomacy, media, academia or private and government sector.
