The Fine Arts Department has a distinctive structure and curriculum that contrast with other art schools in Turkey. The Department offers a flexible program that unites studio practice and art theory, combining art disciplines such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation, and ceramics with courses in theory and criticism. The aim of the curriculum is to equip future artists with a capacity for studio work and an understanding of artistic production as well as the theoretical dimensions of art. The well-equipped etching, lithography, silk screen, ceramics, and sculpture studios offer students excellent opportunities to explore new horizons.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

The interdisciplinary program of the Department integrates theory and practice. The aim is to enhance the students in various fields of fine arts. The students are expected to go through the phases of research, recognition, experience, and production of original works of art. They are continuously encouraged to develop their own artistic and critical formation.

In the Program, students experiment with various fields of arts such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and multi-media and are encouraged to conceive and produce creative original works and modes of thought.
