“Becoming the leading International Relations Department in the fields of diplomacy-negotiation and defense-security to offer knowledge to the people and the nation” is the vision to be achieved by the department. The Department of International Relations focuses on the studies on diplomacy-negotiation, defense-security and conflict management. The department trains students in a multi-cultural atmosphere. Students and lecturers come from various ethnicities and islands in Indonesia and Timor Leste. The Department of International Relations is a “miniature Indonesia” where students with different religious, ethnic and cultural background share equal opportunity in the learning process. The learning process in the department is supported by 22 full time and part time lecturers who mostly hold Master’s or Doctor’s degree. To strengthen the practical skills of students, the faculty invites practitioners from the Indonesian Foreign Ministry, foreign embassies in Jakarta and UKM Malaysia to share their knowledge and experiences. These practitioners train students in mastering practical skills in the field of diplomacy.
Graduates of the International Relations Department, UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta are expected to master analytical and practical ability in the field of diplomacy negotiation, defense security and conflict studies. The reason is the fact that globalization increase competition among nations, societies and individuals. In a competitive world, the skills to apply diplomacy and negotiation is the key to success. The state needs skillful diplomats and negotiators to win international negotiations. Local governments, multinational companies and other institutions also need experts in diplomacy and negotiation as well as in international relations. Considering the opportunity and challenge, the International Relations department becomes the center of excellence which combines the high quality teaching of negotiation and management, and conflict security in a multicultural atmosphere. This will help graduates to pursue careers in various institutions and companies such as: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Local Governments, StateOwned Enterprises, Colleges/Universities, Mass Media, Banking Sector, Multinational Corporations, Non-Government Organizations, etc.
