About the Program

Political Science and International Relations graduate degree program is offered under The Department of Economics and Business Administration. It is an academic discipline that studies political principles and practices with an emphasis on the concept of “power” in the past and today while critically examining the processes of authoritative decision-making and action carried out in different political structures and their impacts.

The program’s curriculum covers the discipline’s four major subfields: comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and local politics. It helps students to conduct extensive research on various issues including international relations theory, international political economy, international law, international security, comparative politics, foreign policy analysis and area studies and specialized courses.

Students who pursue a degree in Political Science and International Relations gain the skills necessary to develop on an ongoing basis by exploring the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, tools, and methods in both disciplines.

Program Aim and Outcomes

This program aims to provide expert graduates with analytical skills to interpret the intensive relationship network of the day through a conceptual and multidisciplinary framework, and critically analyze and resolve issues regarding power through an advanced-level of foreign language. For this purpose, the students will be taking courses on political theories, international relations theories, foreign policy, leadership, conflict and peace, international treaties, and law.

The students are encouraged for learning skills that will extend to their future for critical questioning and learning after they graduate; enabling them to handle future problems, especially during authoritative decision-making. Therefore, one of the aims of the program is to provide graduates with both practical and intellectual skills that will be useful on their career paths. Some of these practical skills include advancing in speaking and writing in a foreign language, using technology, organizing their responsibilities, and recognizing ways to design and collect research materials; while intellectual skills include research design and application abilities and critical thinking on theories and contemporary issues.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of Political Science and International Relations have a wide array of career opportunities in ministries, banks, insurance companies, national and international companies, national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and online and print media organizations in different parts of the world. Graduates can undertake master’s and doctoral studies in any field of social sciences if they choose to pursue an academic career.
