Introduction

Design Studies graduate program has been established with the aim of uniting all design disciplines in order to make these more creative by interacting. The program commenced its facilities in the 2006-2007 academic year, though advanced level research in Design Studies area is needed. That is why the doctoral program of Design Studies is going to admit students in the 2013-2014 academic year for the first time.

The priority of the program is to be creative in the design field. It is aimed to make further research and acknowledge the innovational updates on environmental design, interior architectural design, industrial design, fashion and textile design, visual communication design. That is why the curriculum of the program has many options in manners of the elective courses. Students may choose related elective courses for their individual research. As soon as the courses are completed, students start to write their doctoral theses after their qualification exam and thesis proposal.
