This course aims to develop the student's ability to critically appraise the knowledge of human factors aspects of indoor ambient environmental conditions. Students analyze the human factors, anthropometric data and their impacts on broad aspects of design development. The physiology and psychology of the client/user are one of the main factors influencing the design of the environment. This course will present design problems that explore issues of ergonomics and proxemics as they apply to interior design. Universal design, the design that creates accessibility, will be the context for the design problems. Discussions will cover the following: interaction of environment and the user’s culture, gender, stage of the life cycle, and physical capabilities.

ARCH526 HUMAN FACTORS IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 3 3 0
Design process of a building starts with the user requirements and activities. Then the building is designed and constructed based on those of requirements and activities. To measure the performance of the occupied building whether it meets the expectations of the design team and the users Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) processes start. POEs are tools used to clarify the relationships between human behavior and the physical environment. Diversity of needs, values, behavioral norms, and social and spatial patterns that characterize different cultures are examined. The implications of this diversity for the societal roles and responsibilities of architects are also considered. POEs are useful tools to identify if the building delivers desired functional use and best value for the investment.
GRD507 COMPUTERS IN DESIGN 3 3 0
This course focuses on each student's personal design vision. Students explore the specific skills necessary to design posters, catalogues as a unique means of communication. The aim of this course is that introducing students and providing comprehensive knowledge with practices to Graphic Design and digital media applications. Working from concept to finished artwork, students develop to transfer the creative thinking to applications and digital Graphic Design tools, methods and strategies for producing effective graphic design solutions. This course aims to analyze and implement the basics of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional modeling and design in graphic design by using Adobe Programs.

GRD504 LIGHTING AND COLOR 3 3 0
The aim of the course is to teach the students general color knowledge, color harmony rules, cultural and psychological effects of color, and to provide sustainable use of color in graphic design. The use of color language in subjects such as photography, graphic design, image and meaning, cinema aesthetics is investigated. The effects of color on culture are examined, students conduct research on the relationship between color and culture, write reports and make presentations. Discusses the common and different areas of societies' understanding of color. Observation-based studies are conducted on concepts and images in the context of color and light. The findings obtained from the observations are discussed in the classroom environment and color and image interaction is tried to be defined.

CMS610 CRITICAL THEORY 3 3 0
This course is designed to study, in the context of ground texts; what is critical theory and how it is being analyzed in today’s world by different approaches. In that respect, the texts those philosophers will be examined especially Marx, Kant and Hedel, Lukacs, Nietzsche, Fromm, Marcuse, Freud, Adorno and Habermas.

IND507 HISTORY OF FURNITURE AND ARCHITECTURE 3 3 0
The course enhances student’s critical comprehension of historic styles and the impact they have on contemporary design solutions. The survey begins with the Egyptian period and provides an overview of the history of furniture and architecture through the Industrial Revolution, including ancient Greece and Rome, the Gothic and Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Emphasis will be placed on chronological periods, the visual characteristics of each style including regional idiosyncrasies, and the terminology relevant to a study of furniture and architecture. The second part of the course extends the investigation into the 20th century, while addressing issues concerning preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive re-use. With field trips and onsite work, students will become actively involved in stylistic progression and local living history.
