GeT MA Alumni Network

The GeT MA Alumni Network was founded in 2023 as a voluntary initiative by and for alumni of the GeT MA program. It works independently from the GeT MA administration offices at HU Berlin and METU Ankara. The aim of the GeT MA Alumni Network is to establish a platform to encourage and promote exchange among GeT MA alumni. We organize activities, such as local meet-ups, support the GeT MA office in the planning of alumni conferences, and assist students with questions around the study program.

BIP 2023 Bodrum

In August, the ERASMUS Blended Intensive Program (BIP) took place in Bodrum, Turkey. The course "Contemporary Issues in World Politics" enabled 11 students of the German-Turkish Masters Program (GeT MA) and the MA Social Sciences of the Institute of Social Sciences to exchange ideas with Turkish, Bulgarian and American students on current issues. A special highlight was the presence of former Ambassador and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Ahmet Üzümcü. The course was organized in cooperation with TOBB ETÜ. In addition to lectures, there were high-level panels on current security policy in the Black Sea and Mediterranean regions. The exchange with students and experts allowed participants to gain broader perspectives and valuable networking.
