Message From The Head of Program

Regional Studıes in International Relations Graduate Non Thesis Program in Istanbul Gedik University is a program that differentiates itself from other International Relations graduate programs, which focuses on the relations between the great powers in the process of globalization, its effects on Turkey’s foreign policy and within this framework, the Middle East Region. In addition, it is a special program that offers students the opportunity to select and learn one of the expert-taught following languages, Chinese, Arabic, Persian or Hebrew for two semesters. Our program, which is entirely in English, will also enable students to master the literature in English in this field.

Our program has started its educational life as of the fall semester of the 2019-2020 academic year as non-thesis program and now it also claims to provide you with a high level and quality education with its with-thesis program. This claim is based on two basic elements. First of all, a privileged special program based on a unique education model and qualified faculty members. The program, enriched by seminars, discussions and conferences to be given by important academicians, business people and people from the media, proves this claim and privilege. You will also have a second language with the foreign language courses to be taught during the training.

With the history, art, natural beauties, and outdoor museums of Istanbul, we offer you a qualified and enjoyable education opportunity. With sincerity and honesty.

I wish you all a healthy and successful life.
