COMM536THEORİES OF THE MOVING IMAGECOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESHuman cultures are understood as consisting of meanings built by signs and symbols, involved by myths, rituals, language, science, and all other cultural phenomena. How these meanings are searched and Made comes under the branch of semiotics. Semiotics – the science of the signs – searches how the signs of a culture represent the world. The ability to understand or to decode signs and symbols Makes it possible to get an access to the culture of a specific people, and provides one with the necessary information needed for several branches in communication, e.g. Media and advertising. The course emphasizes on analyzing and understanding everyday objects and their presentation in advertising. Equipped with the necessary topic related terminology, and actual reading Materials the student will learn how to read advertising elements such as photos, pictures, graphics, and web page layouts. Furthermore the student will be able to give attention to the design of culture specific advertising Material.
COMM540THIRD WORLD CINEMACOMMUNICATION 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).
COMM545DESIGN PERINCIPLES FOR MULTIMEDIA COMMUNICATIONPROF. DR. FATOŞ ADİLOĞLUCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThe course covers the following topics: the concept of communication design; major design approaches; generic design process; guiding principles of powerful design; notations of various symbol systems; designing textual, auditory, and visual messages; interactive multimedia design; theoretical/practical considerations; potentials and challenges of virtual technologies; research on the effectiveness of multimedia based communications; current issues and trends as well as their implications for the future.
COMM567CRITICAL MEDIA STUDIES:MEDIA REPRESENTATIONS OF THE NON-HUMAN ANIMAL 'OTHER'ASSOC. PROF. DR. MASHOED BAILIECOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis is a graduate level course exploring the role of traditional media in representing the ways in which we perceive of and engage with nonhuman animals and, more broadly, our environments. The emphasis is on both the techniques and the role of representation of nonhuman animals in film, television, advertising, music videos and across social media platforms. We draw on a number of traditional and contemporary media studies positions in order to construct theoretical frameworks through which to examine and consider the mediated construction of our relationship to other species. Throughout the semester we will view a selection of documentaries and films that challenge our perceptions of the world, question our taken-for-granted assumptions about our relationship to each other and to non-human animals with whom we co-exist, and raise concerns about the historical and contemporary role that the media have played in normalizing, rationalizing and habituating society to “the way things are". Key questions concern how stories are constructed in order to normalize, for example, nonhuman animals as pets, food, clothing, objects for experimentation, in zoos and circuses or as “wild". How can we approach these stories critically?" By drawing upon the literature emanating from critical media and animal studies and engaging key insights from the broad fields of cultural studies and feminist and post-colonial studies, course participants conduct research and produce papers that offer opportunities for fundamental shifts in the way we engage with the world.
COMM584THE ART OF PERSUASION:RHETORIC IN ADVERTISINGCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course provides the student with grounding in both classical rhetoric and its critical use in the study of advertising copywriting. It is the contention of this course that advertising can be profitably viewed as, fundamentally, an application of rhetorical principles to the building of persuasive selling messages. The course emphasizes the foundation status of Aristotle's The Art of Rhetoric but will also look at extracts from rhetorical works by Plato, Isocrates and Ramus. It will be seen that ancient concerns regarding the ethics of rhetoric closely mirror current concerns regarding the ethics of advertising. Students will be introduced to the 'figures of speech' (the tropes and schemes of rhetoric) and will be asked to both analyze contemporary advertising with respect to the figures and also produce copy of their own using them. The work of Edward McQuarrie will be closely examined in terms of its ramifications for contemporary changes in advertising methodology. Finally, issues surrounding current debates concerning the rhetoric of rhetoric will be applied to the advertising industries own attempts at self-justification, self-appraisal and self-regulation.
COMM598SEMINARCOMMUNICATION 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.

However, they will not be allowed to register to thesis before passing the Comprehensive Exam.
COMM601THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR COMMUNICATION PARADIGMSPROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZADCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course provides the student with grounding in both classical rhetoric and its critical use in the study of advertising copywriting. It is the contention of this course that advertising can be profitably viewed as, fundamentally, an application of rhetorical principles to the building of persuasive selling messages.

COMM602CURRENT ISSUES IN COMMUNICATION STUDIESASSOC. PROF. DR. MASHOED BAILIECOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course introduces major and emerging approaches to understanding communication as both an academic discipline and a social practice while providing the theoretical background and analytic skills needed to navigate the tensions among these varying approaches. The course reviews the intellectual history of communication studies, engages traditional and contemporary questions about human communication, raises 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 the legitimation of different knowledge claims.
COMM603ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR COMMUNICATION RESEARCHPROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZADCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis class studies the methodological underpinnings of “alternative" methods informing the doing of research. It focuses on the methodological reasons that lead us to consider them as alternatives, taking the “Science versus Humanities" division and its later, and evidently insistent, iterations and rearticulations as “Natural Sciences versus Social Sciences" within the previous category of “Science," and as “Qualitative Methodology versus Quantitative Methodology" within the “Social Sciences" category, as a leading question. The course is not meant as a cookbook teaching how to apply such and such “alternative" methods. Rather, it looks at the foundational logos of differing methods such as their different, and even incompatible, epistemological and ontological justifications, the different historical, cultural and institutional configurations of scientific practices, and the changing power-knowledge relationship in the doing of science. The often tacitly assumed necessity of method, understood as a pre-determined path to follow, is not taken for granted in this class, and arguments “against method" and pragmatic approaches like “bricolage" are given serious consideration.
COMM611ETHNOGRAPHIC RESEARCH METHODSCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course will discuss the theoretical and practical approaches to ethnographic research methodology. The course will exam and discuss such ethnographic research methods as: participant observation; ethnographic interviewing; projective interviewing; writing an ethnographic description; the interpretation and analysis of ethnographic research data; and the principles of qualitative research.
COMM612ADVANCED SEMINAR IN SEMIOTICSCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESFocusing on in depth analysis of major foundational texts and current challenges, the course scrutinizes theoretical paradigms in the field of semiotics as well as questioning the analytical tools developed in the first century of semiotic research. The tasks also include a genealogical discussion of the rise of semiotics as an independent “science" and prospects for the future of this trend vis-à-vis the postmodern situation.
COMM666POSITIONING AND VIRAL MARKETINGASST. PROF. DR. RAZİYE NEVZATCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course takes two modern marketing classics, Positioning by Ries and Trout and Seth Godin's Unleashing the Idea Virus and subjects them to heavy close reading and critical scrutiny. The “positioning" position has become an incredibly powerful one within modern business and its application is thus constantly fraught with misunderstanding. This course will examine the premises, motivations and implementations of positioning theory as set forth in Ries and Trout's text. We will examine why the theory has been so successful and then go on to compare it with another representative of a recent revolution in marketing theory, Seth Godin's Unleashing the Idea Virus, a highly popular implementation of memetic theory. Students will be encouraged to examine both works from a practical as well as theoretical standpoint, investigating the influence of Godin's ideas on internet marketing and Ries and Trout's championing of the crenau, or niche, and its influence on the creation of new markets in the 80s and 90s.
COMM699SEMINARASSOC. PROF. DR. ARSU ARSOYCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESMany graduate students under-perform in their course work, exams, and eventually their theses due to poorly developed basic study skills.

Some selected topics are role of the audience, effects controversy, ratings, visual images which dominate our society, news, public opinion.
ILET502SELECTED READINGS IN MASS COMMUNICATION STUDIES ASSOC. PROF. DR. METİN ERSOYCOMMUNICATION 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.

ILET584THE POWER OF PERSUASION : RHETORIC IN ADVERTISINGCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course provides the student with grounding in both classical rhetoric and its critical use in the study of advertising copywriting. It is the contention of this course that advertising can be profitably viewed as, fundamentally, an application of rhetorical principles to the building of persuasive selling messages. The course emphasizes the foundation status of Aristotle's The Art of Rhetoric but will also look at extracts from rhetorical works by Plato, Isocrates and Ramus. It will be seen that ancient concerns regarding the ethics of rhetoric closely mirror current concerns regarding the ethics of advertising. Students will be introduced to the 'figures of speech' (the tropes and schemes of rhetoric) and will be asked to both analyze contemporary advertising with respect to the figures and also produce copy of their own using them. The work of Edward McQuarrie will be closely examined in terms of its ramifications for contemporary changes in advertising methodology. Finally, issues surrounding current debates concerning the rhetoric of rhetoric will be applied to the advertising industries own attempts at self-justification, self-appraisal and self-regulation.
ILET598SEMINARCOMMUNICATION 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.
INAR500THESISINTERIOR ARCHITECTURE
INAR501INTERDISCIPLINARY WORKSHOPINTERIOR 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 METHODSINTERIOR 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.

INAR524CONVERSATION AND RENOVATION CONCEPTS FOR HISTORICAL BUILDINGSINTERIOR ARCHITECTUREThe aim of this course is to introduce the students with the basic knowledge
on conservation concept in general and the different approaches of
renovation and adaptive re-use of old buildings for contemporary functions in
detail. Old buildings have different values as historical; aesthetical;
documentation, intellectual: emotional and material values. These values can
be present in a building individually or al together; and provide the objective
basis for functional changes in the frame of sustainability. The course will be
supported by lectures on conservation concept. Throughout the course, the
students are expected to be able to make discussions on the current
applications of renovation from the world, according to the basic conservation
and renovation concepts. The students are also expected to make small
scale exercises on renovation projects at a conceptual level.
INAR542CONTEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALSINTERIOR ARCHITECTUREIn the past, the architectural options were often limited to local materials and traditional methods of working. But over recent decades the globalisation of trade plus global communications and transport logistics networks have changed the situation drastically. For the architects and interior designers, the search for the “perfect" materials has become very important subject. Discovery of the new technologies and transfer of existing material to other contexts are two principles for the research on innovative materials. Each innovative materials has assets and disadvantages. The process of selecting the right interior materials should cover the aspects of health and safety codes, economic criteria, environmental criteria, installation information, industry standards and regulations. The aim of this course is to help the interior designers select the suitable innovative materials and installation techniques in terms of the factors mentioned above.
INAR563ARCHITECTURAL SPACE ORGANIZATIONINTERIOR ARCHITECTUREThe main target of this course is to understand, interpret and evaluate the
architectural space and its organization: where space organization wil be
emphasized. Dimensions in the understanding, interpretation and evaluation
of space organization are handled in different dimensions such as
environmental, political, social, cultural and behavioral dimensions of the
objective and subjective manner. By integrating considerations regarding the
organization of space with the principles of design, aesthetics, function,
comfort and culture, the course enables students to configure possible and
attractive spaces in interior design by creating/interpreting spaces that are as
comfortable as they are efficient, functional and aestheticaly pleasing, by
promoting the well-being of their occupants as well as the environment.
Under the light of this view, the course will be supported by lectures on space
organization principles and theories. The students are expected to make
smal scale exercises on space organization.
INAR565PHILOSOPHY OF DESIGNINTERIOR ARCHITECTUREThis course is thought to be a contribution to the study of Philosophy of
Design. In it. a critical overview is taken of the structure and dynamics of
design theory. This overview leads to a method to assist with the critical
analysis of design theories and their associated concepts. If 'design theory' is
considered as an artefact to be designed, this course's role is in the part of
the design process often called 'problem analysis'. Supporting what is
presented in this course is an assumption that the act of designing by human
agents is central to the academic study of design. This theoretical standpoint,
that what is described as design, always implicates humans, together with the
understanding that any theory, theorising or theory interpretation has
meaning only in a human context, is the basis for the analysis of the issues
addressed in the course. The course addresses the position of the interior
designer in the society and relation of design to the humanities, social
sciences, and natural/physical scienvitelere bir giriş sunmaktadır.

LAW 575TRNC CHEQUE LAWASST. PROF. DR. HAKAN BİLGEÇLAWCheque is a common payment instrument in Turkish Rebuplic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). In order to ensure the quality of this instrument, the issued bill must have the legal conditions of the cheque.TRNC Law is mainly under the influence of Anglo-Saxon law. Due to this feature, judicial decisions are important as well as codes. Bills of Exchange Law is the main code of TRNC cheque law. Bills of Exchange Law has been incorporated into the Cypriot legal system by the translation of the British Bills of Exchange Act, dated 1882. Nowadays, the Third Part of the Law, about cheques is in a mixed form. The form and interpretation of cheque are still under the influence of Bills of Exchange Act. Despite that, sanction of dishonoured cheque is in harmony with Turkish Law.Dishonoured cheque and sanctions of dishonoured cheque is one of the major problem in legal systems. Thus, dishonoured cheque and sanction of dishonoured cheque part is the most changed part of Bills of Exchange Law. The only sanction about dishonoured cheque in TRNC law is prohibition of opening and using cheque account. The Central Bank of TRNC has important missions about implementation of this prohibition. Prohibition of opening and using cheque account is abolished when the all cheque amount is paid. Because of this, the prohibition is not an affective sanction. Numbers of prohibited people don't decrease in the last years, also verifies that.In this course, which is offered for the LL.M. in law, related legislation will be examined with comparative method and judicial decisions.The aim of the course is, especially for practitioners (judge, public prosecutor, attorney etc.) studying LL.M. in law, examine the issue in all angles. This course will give substructure for cheques disagreements in daily life.
