The problem of technology will be described through evolution of the concepts of techne, science (episteme), technique and technology; Martin Heidegger’s approach to problem of technology and science (concepts of framing and standing reserve) and other descriptions of instrumental approach to technology. The theories of tectonics will be covered through Alberti (linaments), Palladio (proportions), Karl Botticher (kernform, kunstform), Gottfried Semper (streotomics and tectonics), Eduard Sekler (atektonik), Kenneth Frampton (ontology of construction), Juhanni Pallasmaa (hapticity) and Gevork Hartoonian’s (towards a secular tectonics) theories. Metaphysical meanings of tectonics will be studied through Martin Heidegger’s and Gaston Bachelard’s philosophies. This will be done with the help of Semper’s drawing of the Carribean hut. These concepts will also be applied to the tectonics of contemporary architecture by starting with Carlo Scarpa, Adolf Loos, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn. The students will also be asked to choose a more recent example of architecture to discuss in the class.

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.

CHES501UNDERSTANDING THE HERITAGE : SOURCES, METHODS AND PRACTICE CULTURAL HERITAGE STUDIESThis course aims to provide the students with knowledge and skills related to value assessment of heritage buildings and sites.  The methods and techniques of recording, information management, historic research and comparative study will be discussed. 
CHES502WORKSHOP IN BUILDING CONSERVATION CULTURAL HERITAGE STUDIESThis workshop will get students to be involved with historical, physical, social, cultural, legal and economic aspects of building conservation. Awareness of the need of interdisciplinary teamwork and contribution of team members of different disciplinary background will be experienced through case studies and discussions. 
CHES503PHILOSOPHY AND THEORY OF CONSERVATION CULTURAL HERITAGE STUDIESThe aim of the course is to help students to arrive at a clear understanding of the concepts and practices that define the field and to promote a strong expertise and perspective on it. Considering the complex understanding of Heritage issues, the course will explore the contemporary philosophy and theory of conservation as basis and framework of conservation, restoration and preservation theory and practice in the globalized world. 
CHES504LEGAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS OF CONSERVATION CULTURAL HERITAGE STUDIESThe course aims to introduce legal and administrative aspects of historic site preservation emphasizing historic development of the concept and its importance in current planning processes. In this course students will become familiar with the basic concepts, elements and principals of site conservation and methodologies used to illustrate/understand such complex, multifaceted problems. Through the short review of international documents, students will gather knowledge on international concepts, norms, current problems and issues related with historic site conservation; administrative and legislative development and processes in some countries (i.e. UK, Italy, France) and existing tools to be used in conservation planning. By the presentation of different case studies, diverse approaches (integrated conservation, gentrification, urban infill, regeneration, renewal etc.) in site preservation will be discussed emphasizing current trends, pressures and threats on historic sites within the urban and/or rural areas. Thus, the students will comprehend concepts, issues and problems related with historic environments considering their diverse character and are expected to develop skills in solving them by the use/development of legislative processes and tools. 
CHES505WORKSHOP IN URBAN CONSERVATION CULTURAL HERITAGE STUDIESThis workshop is designed to respond to the fact that during the last century, unprecedented development of the urban environment has strongly influenced urban transformation. Starting from the main point that while the conservation of historic cities and sites in the context of urban planning is an issue that has been explored for over half a century, such conservation efforts have yet to be well integrated into urban planning. What will be identified is the rapid urban expansion, densification, inappropriate modern interventions, gentrification, and changes in uses that are occurring worldwide, directly affecting the preservation of historic urban environments. The workshop in urban conservation considers the revolving cycle of understanding, retaining, and promoting the significance of the place and strongly emphasizes the shared responsibility of decision makers, residents, and users.

COMM501MASS COMMUNICATION AND SOCIETY   ASST. PROF. DR. ÜLFET KUTOĞLU KURUÇ    COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course provdes students w’th useful analytical tools for conceptualizing the broad contexts within which the mass media are situated. In this course we will explore these questions. What does the media do? Repeat the truth? Make up the truth? Entertain in order to be more profitable? What are the unseen forces that determine what we view and read? How does media content affect the nature of society? 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  COMMUNICATION 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.
COMM504COMMUNICATION STUDIES RESEARCH METHODS PROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZADCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis course aims to introduce the students to the epistemology, ontology and methodology of standard and alternative research in communication studies. It provides not only the theoretical background but also practical skills of carrying out research in communication. The students taking this course are expected to contrast research with reasoned inquiry and common sense; to identify problems which will justify communication research; to formulate researchable research techniques; to select appropriate research techniques; to write a succinct, detailed and persuasive research proposal, to present it orally and defend it against criticism; to explore quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and produce research reports in both of them.
COMM523POLITICAL ECONOMY OF COMMUNICATIONASST. PROF. DR. BARUCK OPIYOCOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESPolitical economy of commmunication draws on historical and contemporary theories of political economy in order to explore a variety of issues emantaing from information and communication societies. This course provides students with an historical framework within which to consider issues related to ownership and control of media industries. İt also provides a framework for sonsidering atterns of ownership and control within the globalisation process, policy making, the role of the nation state, production, distribution and exibition of cultural commdities, the public sphere, and issues related to democracy and communication technologies and industries. The course draws an international body of research within the field of political economy of communication.
COMM532UNDERSTANDING MEDIA COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESGraduate students in communication and media studies need to have academic skills necessary for critical readings of various cultural (including the print/visual media) texts.   Introducing theoretical background for approaching/analyzing the hegemonic and counter-hegemonic texts, this course aims to provide the ability to see the `things` differently in the field of Communication Studies.  The course  will provide an overview of the different approaches to textual analysis with particular emphasis on post-structuralist approaches that take all the cultural texts/practices as discursive, to be read like other texts. First part of the course  will base on recent post-structuralist and post-modern theorists’ and philosophers’ works such as Michel Foucault, Chantal Mouffe and Ernesto Laclau, Jacques Derrida that contributed to the discourse theories. Second part of the course will cover the evaluation of the researches/works that were done by the scholars who are in the field of Cultural Studies. Giving this course during the Fall term, the students will be prepared to the “Seminar in Discourse Analysis”(JRN 525) that will be opened in the following Spring term as an elective course for the ones who want to apply critical discourse analysis to the cultural texts.

COMM600PH.D. THESIS COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIES 
COMM601THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR COMMUNICATION PARADIGMS  PROF. DR. BAHİRE ÖZAD COMMUNICATION 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.
COMM602CURRENT ISSUES IN COMMUNICATION STUDIESASSOC. PROF. DR. MASHOED BAILIECOMMUNICATION AND MEDIA STUDIESThis is an entry-level Ph.D. seminar intended to expose students to a wide body of literature dealing with selected theoretical concepts and studies in the field of    Communication and Media. The class will involve examination and analysis of research topics of the past and their implications for the present and future studies; overview of communication –related issues that need further investigation; priorities and alternative explanations of various intellectual perspectives of current issues in the field of communication. 
COMM603 ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR COMMUNICATION RESEARCH 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.

INAR500 THESIS INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE 
INAR501INTERDISCIPLINAY 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 perspectives. The role of the instructors) 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 wi reflect the goal of communicating one’s research and intellectual work to the international scholarly community in high quality English prose.
INAR511 INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE ISSUES  INTERIOR ARCHITECTUREExercises guided by the instructor will make the students research deeply into a specific field and learn how to deal with a specific problem. The exercises that will be carried on individually will make the student aware of the configuration of interior spaces regarding the knowledge gathered. Subjects included within the content of the course can be listed as follows:
Main architectural principles from interior architecture perspective, human being and his/her limits, ergonomics, perception, understanding, apprehension, cognition, image , dentity, individuality, social and cultural issues; culture, cultural and personal limits,
subjectivity, social interaction.
INAR542CONTEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS  INTERIOR 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 ORGANIZATION  INTERIOR ARCHITECTUREThe main target of this course is to understand, interpret and evaluate the architectural space and its organization; where space organization will 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 aesthetically pleasing, by promoting the well-being of their occupants as well as the environment. Under the light of this view, the course wil be supported by lectures on space organization principles and theories. The students are expected to make small scale exercises on space organization.
INAR565PHILOSOPHY OF DESIGN INTERIOR 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 sciences. Interaction with disciplines are emphasized. Introduction to significant theories concerning the interaction of people and interior architectural space.

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.
