Introduction

Department of Basic Art Sciences -founded in 2010- has been providing courses to all departments of the Faculty of Fine Arts, inboth compulsory and elective categories. Our department does not admit students itself; however, the courses provided are open to all departments. It has been structured as two majors which are The Department of Art Sciences and Basic Art Education - Art Major.  In the department of Art Sciences, theoretical courses such as art concepts, art history, aesthetics, art philosophy, art psychology, art sociology, art analysis, mythology and iconography, which are the basis of art, are instructed.
