The aim of this course is to equip students with conceptual resources that will allow them to understand and critically evaluate both world political events and the contemporary academic literature analyzing and explaining these events. The focus of the course is on three prominent traditions in international relations theory realism, the Marxist critique of imperialism and liberal cosmopolitanism. These traditions underpin much of recent academic work on world politics. They also structure the ways in which professionals of world politics (e.g. governmental foreign-policy makers, IGO and/or NGO officials, MNC managers) perceive, assess and act in response to world political situations and problems. A thorough understanding of and critical reflection on these three theoretical traditions, their philosophical foundations and the historical and socio-political contexts in which they gain(ed) intellectual prominence are therefore essential for anyone who would like to make sense of recent history and the contemporary reality of world politics.

Course Description
The course aims to examine fundamental problems such as ecological damage, extinction of habitats and species, unhealthy food production, the energy crisis, economic and social crises and unsustainable cycles of production and consumption together with suggested solutions holistically and on site. Starting from the assumption that these vital problems stem from the weakening of human-nature relations, the workings of nature and the universe and examples of traditional systems of living that take these into account will be observed in their own settings. On the basis of examples they observe, students will develop scenarios for solving some of these problems created by life styles that are far removed from nature. The course program will build a holistic view of sustainability and harmony with nature step by step, using presentations, discussion sessions, role play, exercises, and visits to sites with a technical focus. Learning process will be supported by documentary films and other sources of information on exemplary lives. Throughout 7 days of full time course, students will experience applied programs and explanatory site visits with ecological farms, enterprises and artisans living around the Kazdagi/Ida mountains, near the Çamtepe Ecological Living Center and Dedetepe Ecological Farm in Kucukkuyu, Canakkale, where the course and accomodation will be held. The most striking aspect of the program is experienceing an ecologically sound and self-sufficient life style for a full week and resulting emphasis on daily life, awareness of present living conditions, and each person's responsibility to be someone who makes a difference for life.

This course aims to equip students who are not specializing in computing with the necessary skills to design and write simple computer programs of practical use in a commercially popular programming language. The course aims to overcome the well known “programming problem” - students’ fear of writing a program from scratch - by teaching the use of a design method that allows program construction to be broken down into a series of manageable steps. The course aims to inculcate good programming habits from the beginning by emphasizing the need for written specifications and the use of documentation and testing tools in development environment. The object oriented aspects of the programming language (if they exist) will only be introduced to the extent necessary to allow working programs to be created in the subset of the full language used in the course. This course could be given using any programming language, but in 2015-2016 will be given in Java. Which means that throughout this document programming language refers to Java, development environment refers to Eclipse, documentation tools refers to Javadocs. For the time being, the language subset used will be defined by the IEEE/ACM Java Task Force package.

Is it possible to determine the political position of a columnist? While Turkey is in the process of being more powerfully interdependent with the global world, there has been several political shifts since 2000s which has caused a lot of transitions between political positions. This process has lead to some changes and more importantly some diversifications in commonly accepted judgments about opinion leaders, as well as reconstructions within the intellectual framework of many opinion leaders. This course aims at evaluating these “new” joint political views with reference to the traditional political outlines. Today's opinion leaders and columnists will be examples to be studied in this context.The literature on political positions will be presented – such as liberal (democrat), conservative (democrat), liberal left, second republican, secularist, conservative nationalist, conservative religious, etc. On the other hand, while an American type of polarization continues in Turkish politics, the role of the media in the construction of these several subcategories on political views will be one of the discussion topics.

Course Description
The course intends to revisit the potentials of the concept of roof; not only as an architectural expression but as an architectural space. A research on the history, performance, and spatial expressions of different roof typologies will be followed by speculative roof additions to existing everyday buildings. Subjective readings of the existing structure and its logic will be used to establish the rules and constraints for the addition. Particular emphasis will be given to the understanding of the relationship between structure, light, and space as well as the staking of a position relative to the existing.

Course Description
In their golden years, the young Arab nations gave birth to aspiring modern urban projects. In a part of the world where the notion of nation-state has run bankrupt, it seems brave to revisit the ambitious products of this long gone Modern era. These latent and inanimate structures bear great potential for recovery; it might be time to reinvent them. The course intends to revisit the Modern Arab architecture by injecting it with instruments of a different nature. Students will be asked to construct individual stories stemming from their study of The Tripoli International Fair, thus deriving a situation and program, to ultimately intervene through a device spontaneously grafting itself onto this latent corpse. The exercise is an attempt to still extract meaning through the manipulation of this phantom, while considering the bitter realities of its present situation in opposition to the socio-political and economical context that produced it.

Course Description
The third year summer practice is composed of three stages. As the first step, a two-week training will be organized by the faculty for two weeks in order for the students to get skills in collaborative design technology. In the second step, students will be working in a design office to experience design development processes, client relations, official works, etc. Finally in the last two weeks, students will attend an architectural excursion or an archaeological excavation of their own choice, which should be approved by the Faculty.

Course Description
The goal of this senior year design studio is to reach a comprehensive understanding of design by analyzing, evaluating and investigating the components of various interiors. It puts emphasis on the designer’s responsibility to understand the reciprocal relationship between historic and contemporary contexts and encourages added-value solutions through spatial design, material selection and program suggestions. Studies are devised to focus on how people interact with spaces and deciding how to improve them for effective and responsive design. Principles of using natural and electric light, use of color, conditioning the indoor air for providing comfort will also be explored as fundamental aspects of interior space.
