Description

The SPS degree program was born out of a recognition of the increasing significance of cross-disciplinary studies in the social sciences. The SPS program is organized around the combined perspectives and analytical tools of Sociology, Political Science, and International Relations, further enriched and supported by History.

SPS students may opt for relatively disciplinary concentrations (such as Sociology, Political Science, International Relations, History) or choose more interdisciplinary, thematic fields (such as political movements, globalization, modern state, ethnic conflict, Turkish history, Balkan and European Studies).
