ARCH622WESTERNIZATION TRENDS IN EASTERN ARCHITECTURE AND ARTASSOC. PROF. DR. NETİCE YILDIZARCHITECTUREThis course aims to study the changing manners in the architecture and art of the Eastern countries during the 18th and 19th centuries. Although several Eastern countries, such as Ottoman Turkey, Iran, India, Far-East, all developed their own individual styles based on their theories mainly based on ritual ideas during the medieval times and reached their apex in the 16th and 17th centuries, they tend to change their original characters during the 18th and 19th centuries due to the cultural impacts as a result of increasing diplomatic and commercial interactions with the western countries. The International Exhibitions organized in European countries also had a significant contribution for the development of western style of architecture with the new industrially produced building materials and decoration elements into the Eastern palaces and other buildings. Eastern sovereigns, with a competitive mood, almost followed this trend in their countries by patronizing western architects, artist and designers which resulted with parallel styles of buildings and interior decoration in Turkey, Iran, India and Egypt. This trend is still continued in Eastern countries. Thus the course will enable students to develop research and writing skills based on theoretical and comparative analytical methods about the buildings selected from relevant countries. Within the possibility, a technical trip in Istanbul will be planned during the study.

Some selected topics are role of the audience, effects controversy, ratings , visual images which dominate our society, news, public opinion.
COMM502SELECTED READINGS IN MASS COMMUNICATION STUDIES ASSOC. PROF. DR. NURTEN KARACOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESA graduate level introduction to communication and media studies through a review of major historical and contemporary trends in communication research and literature. The course begins with an overview of the early work produced by North American and European scholars and social theorists around communication and culture, proceeds through the historical debates of the 1970s around the possibility of a "field" of communication and considers the more contemporary and still emerging approaches to understanding communication as a social practice while providing the theoretical background and analytic skills needed to navigate the tensions among these varying approaches. We will consider questions concerning the multiple ways in which communication issues can be addressed from different points of view, and explores how these different points of view support different knowledge claims.

COMM543SELF-OTHER RELATIONSHIP  ASSOC. PROF. DR. HANİFE ALİEFENDİOĞLU COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESIt is necessary for potential media professionals to have a gender perspective with the understanding of "globalizing social life" and "world in change." The intention of this MA seminar is to provide an introduction to contemporary gender issues in the social sciences and humanities; in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, cultural studies and post-colonial studies.  In addition to this, special attention will be given to various perspectives in gender analysis, such as, for instance, the first, second, and third waves of feminism, and their subsequent effects on the social sciences and humanities. The concept of gender and its influence upon contemporary academic disciplines will be the primary focus of this seminar. Participants will be given a variety of interesting readings covering a broad range of perspectives. Some of the concepts that will be investigated include; patriarchy, sex and gender, gender mainstreaming, public and private dichotomy. Those students who wish to join this seminar will be required to complete the essential readings list in the seminar outline, read a book related to one of the specific areas that we will cover, and write a critique or analysis of it (handing in various drafts and a final copy as directed).
COMM598SEMINAR COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESMany graduate students under-perform in their course work, exams, and eventually their theses due to poorly developed basic study skills. Taking essay writing as its basic activity, this course demonstrates how the integration of study, planning, time management, rhetorical and language skills is an essential prerequisite of good results.The course will be run on a "workshop" basis – much of the actual exercises we will be doing will occur during class time. Come expecting to participate in discussions and practical work. There will also be occasional homework assignments. All of this work is important as it will form the basis of students' coursework mark. In the final essay students will be expected to demonstrate all the skills they have acquired during the course – preparing outlines, drafts, coherent argument, etc.
COMM600PH.D. THESIS COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIES 
COMM601THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR COMMUNICATION PARADIGMS  ASSOC. PROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZADCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESIn this course, we will discuss behavioral (mainstream) and critical approaches to communication theory. The major aim of the course is to familiarize students with alternative theoretical approaches to understand communication. Each week, a different communication theory will be introduced.
COMM603 ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR COMMUNICATION RESEARCH ASSOC. PROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZADCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis class will focus on alternative research methods and the methodological reasons that lead us to consider them as alternatives to the mainstream tradition. We will look at the distinction made between the "sciences" and the "humanities as well as the remapping of that distinction within the sciences in terms of the natural or physical sciences versus the social sciences differentiation. It is this notion of a difference-in-kind that also underlies the disparity and incommensurability of qualitative and quantitative methodologies. The ontological underpinnings of these distinctions will force us to reconsider, for example, the conventional understandings of, and the requirement for, an "objective" knowledge. Informed by a positivist or empiricist methodology, PhD students are sometimes asked to write their dissertation in the passive voice in order to create and maintain this impression of objectivity. It is their style of writing that enables this impression of objectivity, otherwise the claim to objectivity is endangered. Noting this opens up another line of research for us; that of the literary style and the rhetoric involved in the representations of truth and reality in scientific research, and scientific discourse in general. This, in turn, points to a, perhaps, surprising but nonetheless necessary relationship between fact and fiction. Etymology shows that relation in the words themselves, for fact is the past participle of fiction (see Gayatri Spivak).
To get a better understanding of the difference-within scientific research, we will study the methodological underpinnings of the alternative methods. To put it differently we will study the logos. We will see that different methods often rest on incompatible epistemological or ontological assumptions.
At the same time, we will not limit our understanding of "alternative" to "qualitative" method as the binary opposite of quantitative method. Instead, we will deconstruct and displace the binary opposition "quantitative versus qualitative." We will note how they depend on and reference each other. We will also note how they both depend on what I have called empiricism in more general terms, and what Jacques Derrida has called a metaphysics of presence.

INAR500THESIS INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE 
INAR501INTERDISCIPLINARY WORKSHOP INTERIOR ARCHITECTUREInterdisciplinary Workshop is a compulsory course offered to all graduate students at an interdisciplinary level. Since architecture stands at the intersection point of different study areas, the interdisciplinary character of the professional studies have to be employed. Thus, the aim of this compulsory course is to guide the students to carry out certain researches  around their different interest areas while the theme remaining constant within one semester.
The sub-research groups are selected according to the various sub-topics of different architectural themes such as design in all scales; theory; history; conservation-restoration; economy; technology, environmental control; construction and materials; management etc.. These research options are kept large in order to give students more freedom in selecting the topic of their contribution to the workshop. Different workshop methods are applied in achieving a mutual end product, taking inputs from different disciplines and viewing the theme from different perspectives.
The role of the instructor(s) is to coordinate the workshop process and to act as a mediator.  Guest lecturers and experts are invited to support the fundamentals of the concerned sub-themes / areas.
Depending on the number and research areas of the attended students, they are required to work either in a single group or as sub-groups forming the whole.  A variety of research methods are experienced by the students; as literature survey; analysis techniques covering observation; photographing; sketching, etc.; workshops towards problem solving; group discussions led by instructors; synthesizing the collected data of the research; presentations (verbal, graphics and posters), etc.
INAR505ADVANCED RESEARCH METHODS INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE(Based on the subject matter, the main aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the process / methods of research plan formulation and implementation and the appraisal of completed pieces of research. The course also aims to give guidance on developing a research strategy, programme and a project that would be appropriate in the early stages of a dissertation/thesis or grant application. It also aims to provide an introduction to the design of experiments and investigations and analysis of data as would be suitable and necessary for the undertaking of postgraduate study.)
This is a required course intended to foster academic research methods and writing skills that will enable new Master students to participate fully in scholarly life and discourse as professionals.  It is designed as a venue for each student to develop a strong dissertation prospectus that includes a clear statement of dissertation topics, research questions, a well-thought-out description of methodology, a consideration of potential primary and secondary sources, and a carefully prepared bibliography. All these aspects of historical analysis are intimately interconnected. It is intended that the writing will focus on the framework of the prospectus. The work produced for this course should be an integral part of the prospectus and, ultimately, of the dissertation.
The course also serves as an introduction to professional activities such as writing and presenting conference papers, preparing grant proposals and curriculum vitae, and writing book reviews.  The standards and requirements of all assignments will reflect the goal of communicating one's research and intellectual work to the international scholarly community in high quality English prose.

MCLA503COMPARATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW COMPARATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS - EMUThe main purpose of this course is to examine the constitutionalism and certain fundamental concepts of the constitutional systems. Generally, constitutional law deals with two topics which are the institutional dimension of the governmental systems and the dimension of freedoms and rights. In this course, approaches to general foundation of the Constitutional Law and Constitutionalism theories will be covered. Constituent powers, types of constitutions, altering constitutions, forms of governments such types of subjects will be held during classes of the course. In this direction, comparing constitutions of different governmental systems and from different legal traditions will be scrutinized during the course. Studies on how constitutions regulate significant issues such as judicial review, and freedom and rights; their protections and limitation regimes will be the main parts of the course.
MCLA504COMPARATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL JUSTICEPROF.DR. SELİN ESENCOMPARATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS - EMUThe aim of this course is to study models of constitutional justice, namely the American model and the European (Kelsenian) model and analyse main characteristics and relevance of the distinctions. The idea underlying this course is also to study general rules and principles of the constitutional justice, such as composition and functions of the constitutional court, procedure, and effects of judgement.
MCLA505FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION COMPARATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS - EMUFreedom of expression is vigorous in a democratic society. It serves a truth-seeking function and freedom of speech permits for individual self-fulfillment. Besides that, all rights carry responsibilities as well, especially when exercising them have the possible to affect other person's lives. The aim of this course is to examine freedom of expression discussions on two major parts as theoretical and practical. Firstly, course will be examined to definition on freedom of expression and the restrictions on. Secondly, important freedom of expression cases which are reviewed by the international courts such ECtHr will be analyzed. This course will content the basic theories and structure of free speech. It will scrutinize how free speech has changed over the historical ages to address such issues as national security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the protection of the reputation or rights of others, for preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary. Especially the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (art. 19 and other provisions relevant to freedom of speech and their protection/implementation) and the relevant case law and the European Convention on Human Rights (art. 10 and other provisions relevant to freedom of speech and their protection/implementation) and relevant case law will be analyzed throughout the course.
MCLA506RIGHT TO PRIVACYPROF.DR. SULTAN ÜZELTÜRKCOMPARATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS - EMUThe right to privacy states to the concept that one's personal information is protected from others. This course will evaluate the development and present importance of the law associated to the privacy of individuals. It means the right to individual autonomy or the right to choose whether or not to involve in certain actions or have certain practices. The right to privacy most often is protected by constitutions as well as international treaties such as European Convention of Human Rights, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It must be balanced against the government's goods, including the promotion of public safety.
