Local Governments

Local governments are the administrative units that are closest to the society in terms of structure and services they provide. The transfer of a significant deal of public services to local governments in the process of globalization has increased the need of qualified labor force. The objective of the Program in Local Governments is to meet the need for qualified labor force and to train employees furnished with self- and lifelong learning skills to be employed in local governments.

Our program started training in 2012-2013 academic year.

Local Government Department can be likened to the Political Science and Public Administration in Turkey. However, unlike them, we try to understand political, social, economic and administrative events from a local perspective. In this context, we focuses more on local governments and urban issues. On the one hand, the department looks at the functioning of local politics and local democracy, on the other hand, it follows the global developments and the effects in the international field.

The department provides its students with the necessary knowledge and skills so that they can have the necessary professionalism in various public institutions and in the private sector, especially local governments.

The students of the Local Governments program can take the DGS examination and the ones who success continues their education to have a bachelor’s degree.
