May 26, 2014
The Welcoming Ceremony for the new students of the Faculty of World Studies was held on Monday, September 25, 2017 in Hananeh Hall of the Faculty of World Studies.
The Board of Directors, the Faculty Members, and the new students of 2017 attended the ceremony. Dr. Saeid Reza Ameli, Dean of the Faculty of World Studies, began the ceremony by welcoming the attendees, especially the new students. “Although the new academic year begins in the fall, your entrance into the Faculty is spring for us”, he said.
Dr. Ameli then advised the students to follow the three principles of order, hard work and effort, and thinking and innovation. “Order is the important factor in promoting the quality of education, research, and living. If there is no order, many capabilities of a human being are unsurfaced. Therefore, I ask you to follow your scientific activities in an orderly fashion; to attend the classes regularly and do your research projects very orderly”, he continued.
Dean of the Faculty of World Studies continued his speech by focusing on the students’ hard work and efforts. “Imam Khomeini said, ‘God is a worker. Hard work is a reflection of God.’ Through hard work, you can achieve success. Hard work and effort is highly valued in scientific approaches. When the thinkers of a society are awake, the people in that society feel safe and secure”, he said.
“Ultimately, our success is a product of our analyses and innovations. One who thinks and contemplates can find solutions. Science is about solutions. It is shared among different sciences. A physician cures and your questions is about setting the relations between Iran and other countries. These questions include various fields of cultural, economic, political, or regional relations. Taylor suggests that thinking is the product of a contact stream. He says, ‘The more contact you have, the more understanding you experience.’ Therefore, analytical thinking is the product of incorporating with the research subject matter”, Dr. Ameli continued.
Focusing on the concept of World Studies, Dean of the Faculty of World Studies continued, “World Studies is a complex and multidimensional study. When you start studying countries, you need to seek your interests and choose what you are going to analyze. You have to understand that the knowledge we do not have is much more than the knowledge we do have. International Organization of Communication has named 2017 as ‘Big Data, Big Impact’. This illustrates the high importance of ‘data’ in the algorithm age of data. This data expands our knowledge about the world.”
Dr. Ameli said, “The professors of the Faculty want you to be successful. Teaching is part of our job. You need to be socially responsible in your life, the society, and the Faculty.”
Discussing about the history of the Faculty of World Studies, Dean of the Faculty of World Studies suggested that, “You can found new thinking and affect the society. A human’s ideal is reality. So, you can work to make it happen.”
