Art of influencing others as well as arriving at a consensus. It is a widespread phenomenon that one encounters at all levels of society (family, school, government, and the like) and between states.
Political science is one of the oldest social science disciplines. It examines how people in societies organized into states live together and resolve or fail to resolve their conflicts. Politics is the art of influencing others as well as arriving at a consensus. It is a widespread phenomenon that one encounters at all levels of society (family, school, government, and the like) and between states.
The political science discipline, which systematically studies the recurring patterns of events in politics, is divided into five subdisciplines: political theory, comparative politics, international relations, national (Turkish) politics, and public administration. The Department's undergraduate and graduate programs aim to provide a balanced education and training in these five subdisciplines. Through elective courses, students can, to a certain degree, specialize in preferred areas.
The Department offers education in political science and public administration with opportunities for a broad and balanced undergraduate study. Students pursue programs that, in addition to providing a firm grounding in the core subjects of the discipline, allow them to take courses in law, economics, management, international relations, and disciplines outside social sciences. Departmental courses are divided in a balanced fashion between political theory, comparative politics, Turkish government and politics, cultural studies, and public administration.
The Department aims at providing the students with an education that would enhance their understanding of social artifacts. In addition to giving the basic requirements of a degree in political science, the program emphasizes the utility of learning social and political roles. A study in the Political Science and Public Administration major aims to maximize students' capacity to analyze and interpret the significance and dynamics of political events and governmental processes. The purpose is not simply to reveal the significance of political events and issues. It is to equip the students with knowledge in coping with political phenomena and problems. The aim is political education "in-depth" for students interested in politics, whatever their professional goals and eventual occupations are.
