Job Opportunities

Political Science and International Relations is essentially a career field. Our graduates will have a variety of career opportunities, such as pursuing an academic career, joining the distinguished government offices, working in the international organizations, political parties, media and international/multinational corporations. 

Our graduates who will be trained with an interdisciplinary method may prefer to pursue graduate studies either in Turkey or abroad. Our students who will decide to pursue an academic career through Masters and Doctoral studies will be in a highly advantageous and privileged position for being accepted by the distinguished universities both in Turkey and abroad, thanks to the quality of the education that they will be given at MEF University. 

Our students who will decide to work for the government will be offered special preparation programs that will enable them to be successful in the highly competitive entrance exams of the government offices, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry for European Union Affairs, and Ministry of Economy. 

Our graduates will also have the opportunity to pursue a career at the United Nations and its specialized agencies, such as UNESCO, UNICEF, UNHCR, UNDP, FAO, and the World Bank, as well as in the political parties, nongovernmental organizations, respected media groups, and leading “think tanks” in our country and in the world. 

Our faculty members who have long been in close contact with these circles during their academic careers will share their invaluable knowledge and experience accumulated over the years with our students that will put them in an advantageous position vis-à-vis their peers in other institutions. 

Thanks to the elective courses that our students may select from the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Economics, some of our graduates may wish to work in the private sector companies, in multinational/multinational corporations, banks and other financial institutions that have representative offices abroad. 

Political Science and International Relations is a highly popular discipline among students in our country aspiring to higher education. Owing to the distinct physical and technological capabilities and the elaborate infrastructure of MEF University, our Department has the capacity to provide our students with a high-quality education at the level of the world’s best universities.
