A multidisciplinary approach is being followed in art and design practices in the contemporary period. This approach, under the umbrella term of “Art and Design,” involves drawing inspiration from other fields while specializing in one subject, and allows for the production of more up-to-date and diverse designs in works of art. In this context, a high-level education in theory and practice is provided to students with a rich program from different disciplines of art and design in our program.
This program is divided into four main research fields with elective courses. These fields are film studies, industrial design, visual arts and design, and music performance and theory. The program also aims to enable students to produce articles and similar written works in their own fields by using various research techniques in order to contribute to literature in the field of art and design. In order for the Proficiency in Art program to be completed successfully, students must write a dissertation on a topic they have determined in the field of Art and Design and/or submit a practical application work in the same direction.
The language of education in the Art and Design – Proficiency in Art Program is English.
