Economics is a rapidly developing branch of science. The process of globalization, accelerating technological progress and growing international competition increase the importance of understanding and solving economic problems steadily. The role of economics and economists is expanding, including how to design and implement various social and economic policies. The mission of the Department of Economics at Mardin Artuklu University is to provide, through both teaching and research, a better understanding of the global, national and local economic issues that will confront our society now and in the future.
Department of Economics carries out both undergraduate and graduate programs. The aim of the undergraduate program of Department of Economics is to provide a sound theoretical basis in economic theory and applied statistical methods. The graduate program of Department of Economics is composed of a M.Sc. and Ph.D programs. M.Sc. Program is designed to deepen the understanding of core topics in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics
The department’s teaching mission is to offer rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs with emphasis on the relationship of theory to practice, use of hands-on research assignments, and the use of state-of-the-art educational technology. It places a particularly strong emphasis on students, incorporating independent learning experiences, extensive student-professor interaction, and the maintenance of a friendly, supportive environment for all students. The basic objectives of our degree programs are:
to provide our students with appropriate analytical skills to lay the groundwork for lifelong learning;
to enable our students to become policy-literate and thus be more informed as citizens;
to encourage the use of experiential learning, including cooperative education, as a means to introduce students to the world of work, reinforce classroom teaching, and assist in the development and advancement of career goals;
to prepare our students for successful careers as applied economists; and
to prepare our undergraduate students for graduate training in economics, law and business administration.
