We invite you to join our family!
Our Faculty was founded in one of the most prominent cultural and touristic centers of Cappadocia, in the 2018–2019 academic year. Our two main departments are Political Sciences & Public Administration; and Political Sciences & International Relations.
We conduct our courses in the tranquil atmosphere of our historical buildings, in a unique geographical location, where we also benefit from social opportunities thanks to the many tourists who visit Cappadocia from all over the world. This is how we prepare ourselves to be part of professional networks in the future. In the first and second years, we provide our students with the necessary skills to analyze, question and learn through our general cultural studies and methodological courses. In all of our courses, seminaries, conferences and applied studies, we embrace the “two heads are better than one” principle, and so always seek group synergy.
Through the creation of such an educational structure, we prepare our students to face the unescapable change they will experience in their professional lives in the ever-changing environment of the future. As such, we are not afraid of changes that are sure to occur in the sector, field or employment in the future. Among our duties is teaching our students how to “think by writing” in both conventional and digital mediums and improving teacher-student relationships and dialogue. We are hosting career planning events, and providing exchange opportunities through the Erasmus, Farabi and Mevlana programs.
Our educational techniques revolve around spurring our student’s curiosity and motivation, as well as inspiring the determination to develop logical and creative thought. We employ teachers experienced at an international level, and partner with government and private sector institutions, enabling our students to make observations and to share the experience with renowned professionals within our applied study approach. We also enrich our curriculum with optional courses in parallel with technological developments in informatics. In our faculty’s Social and Strategical Studies Application and Research Center, we conduct research projects on regional and national scales with the support of our students and partners.
Our academic, peer-reviewed journal, Cappadocia Journal of Area Studies makes a prominent contribution to science and academic literature, and our students are also involved in the publishing process. Our traditional Cappadocia Conferences of Economy bring together many innovative and bright minds to work on regional and national economic problems. We also help raise the math geniuses of the future within our Math Workshop, as a social responsibility program for elementary school students.
We invite you to become part of this vision.
