HISTORY

The program was established in 1986 by Prof. Dr. Semra Ögel, who was then the Chair of the History of Architecture department, with the help of ITU Architecture Faculty’s History of Architecture professors. It has been established with the aim of providing students with a broad perspective on art and its history.

Graduates of our program carry on their profession in notable domestic and international positions. Most graduates work as writers, art gallery specialists, and academic staff in state and private universities.

 

OBJECTIVE OF THE PROGRAMME

The objective of Art History Graduate Programme is to establish a critical art history education in broad perspective with interdisciplinary approach. For this reason, the programme includes in its syllabus art history courses starting from the Ancient periods, continuing with Byzantine, Seljukian, Ottoman, Turkish Republican and modern arts. It is also aimed not only to provide the students with a historical background, but also to help them grasp theoretical approches.

The graduate programme accepts candidates who hold an undergraduate or graduate degree in art history, as well as other disciplines such as archaeology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, history, literature, journalism and communication, industrial design, law, architecture, visual and performing arts and others that can be related with art history. The programme follows the interdisciplinary approach as an educational method and encourages students to develop an analytical and critical view in order to combine their undergraduate knowledge together with the language, concepts and methods of history of art into the production of an original M.A. thesis.
