Faculty of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture

Fine Arts education received formal acceptance approximately 200 years ago and has today become a creative area with a strong relation to the production and service sectors. Those who have studied learning processes throughout the ages, beginning with Plato, have emphasized the importance of the arts in the education process. It is not sufficient to organize a city, to build a machine, to perform a ceremony and devise an organisation well and to make them work. Being in harmony with aesthetics strengthen the affects of Fine Arts and increases its prestige. Hence, Fine Arts is included in every part of modern life.

Fine Arts Education, in line with its accepted duties is obliged to renew itself especially over the last thirty years. The Faculty’s curriculum is being continuously revised in order to prepare students to become as near future professionals for their multi-oriented jobs. In a prime position, in order to make it more functional, a sensitivity was needed from which perspective the Faculty is trying to update the standards of both our academic staff and technical staff to those achieved by Fine Arts today.

Continuously developing and improving the standards of the faculty provides the opportunity for our students to participate more actively in this dynamic atmosphere. There is an open dialogue between students and academic staff requiring great effort from both sectors. It is important to say that the students contribute in improving the education provided by our faculty.
