About Us

Since the potentiality is targeted to approximately. 10000 students in near future, the GAU-Institute of Social Science (ISS)) and Institute of Science and Technology (IST) seek to facilitate and enhance the training and graduation of leaders who will be instrumental in making significant contributions to their fields of expertise in particular, and to the world-community in general. In doing so, the expectation is that our Graduate Programs will be widely respected as being among the best available anywhere.

The vision of the ISS and IST are to become internationally recognized and challenging for its high quality of its graduate programs, graduate faculty and scholarly achievement, while producing competitive and intellectually stimulated individuals who can provide bold leadership in new directions. We believe that graduate education is an integral component of any university and has an impact on education at all levels. The ISS  and IST represent Girne American’s best expression of its major purposes of existence – teaching, research, and public service - and, therefore, must be a prime center of excellence.

Our vision goes beyond mere growth to change the culture of graduate education at GAU, and also respecting to sister universities where located in GB, USA and Singapore as well as planned forthcoming Univ. in Turkey. The ISS and IST of the future will prepare career-ready students with a true competitive edge through a new focus on professionally-oriented training designed for the real word.

·          Preparing Leaders– we want to add career-orientated management skills training for all graduate students to help them to succeed in industry, government, non-profit organizations, and academia. These skills include responsible conduct of research, advanced teaching expertise, effective communication, and effective leadership.

·          Professional Degrees– graduate certificates, dual degrees, and inter-disciplinary professional degrees to prepare students who have technical skills, multiple professional competencies, and are collaborative, highly adaptable and globally orientated.

·          Interdisciplinary Experiences– encouraging a true community of scholars working across departmental boundaries at the intersections of disciplines. We will give students opportunities for cross-communication and cultivation of ideas, promoting teamwork on problems of common interest. The best and most provocative graduate research of the future will take place here at the edges of disciplines, and this is where the best faculty and students want to be.

The ISS and IST provide innovative, pragmatic, responsive and accessible graduate and post-graduate programs of the highest quality. Graduate programs fostering a close interdependence between research and profession to enhance and upgrade the undergraduate experience.

·          The graduate faculty and students work together to develop new theoretical and empirical knowledge, design innovative methods and technologies to discover and disseminate that knowledge, and engage in state-of-the-art professional skills.

·          The ISS and IST are a source of intellectual capital for Girne American University, the region, the nation, and worldwide. The ISS and IST extend their programs and services for professional education through specialized graduate and certification programs.
