Girne American University, The Graduate School

Since the potentiality is targeted to approx. 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.
