About the Department

The purpose of the Interior Architecture Program is to encourage students to take part in the interior design process within real-life context; to raise the quality of life of the individuals; to increase the efficiency of the social circle; to create spaces that protect the health, safety and well-being of the public; and to integrate theory and practice through individual and administrative problem-solving strategies. The program aims to provide a balance between art, technology and human aspects of the profession, with an awareness of the modern trends and the most recent technological developments in the field of interior architecture. The vision of the program is to ensure that the students gain expert knowledge and experience during their undergraduate education; recognize the importance of geography and universal values; develop a versatile designer identity; demonstrate competence in both current and future artistic and design issues; and focus on responsibility, awareness and social / professional ethics.

Education Opportunities

Aiming to integrate theory and practice through individual and collaborative problem solving strategies, in a process that encourages the individual to improve the quality of life, increase the efficiency of the social environment, and create spaces that will protect the health, safety and welfare of the public, the Interior Architecture undergraduate program offers students the appropriate instructional learning environment and opportunities.

Basically, the program focuses on the interior design studio and encompasses courses in other subject areas such as history, theory, technology, construction materials, experimental design, environment, and visual communication. The design process places extensive emphasis on design fundamentals, observation, research, spatial development, and the social aspects of space. Also, various electives are included in six semesters to ensure students receive a well-rounded academic base that will enhance both their personal and professional development.

With qualified academic staff, in-curricular and extra-curricular academic activities are carried out in studios, classrooms, laboratories, workshops, and technical trips, and students are offered opportunities to develop competencies related to the interior architecture profession.

In this way, the students gain the ability to use their project-based problem-solving skills to create functional and aesthetic interior designs that will benefit society. When designing their future living environments, they can take into account the traditions, values, and cultural and architectural heritage of different communities, which can create design solutions that can respond to the needs of various cultures and contexts, while also bringing a cultural perspective to environmental studies. By using contemporary technologies and the materials, textures, and colors required by this technology in the design process, they can develop the ability to express these design ideas creatively with various drawing and presentation techniques. They can work in collaboration with different disciplines such as architecture and landscape design by developing multidimensional perspectives in design and practice. Feeling the social and environmental responsibility, they can apply ethical responsibility, aesthetic expression, and practical applications in the dimension of professional standards. There are opportunities for new uses of historical interiors, respecting the architectural and historical heritage, and gaining the ability to use contemporary practices in this context.

Furthermore, the Interior Architecture program provides students with the opportunity of getting a second undergraduate degree (double major) or gaining knowledge in a specific field (minor program) as a student at a different program in addition to Interior Architecture.

Career Areas

Graduates of the Department of Interior Architecture are able to work with different design areas. They can work with infrastructure architects to design the interior of offices. Graduates can also set up their own offices in the construction, furniture, retail sectors, both in the design, marketing, creativity units; and they can show their imagination on preserving historical structures. The courses on furniture and interior architecture are offered with experimental design components, to showcase work, giving students the opportunity to design scenery and places of visual entertainment. There is also a possibility of an academic career in higher education institutions. An interior architect can have a successful career by accurately making use of their human relations and psychology in all aspects of creativity.
