The City and Architecture (Thesis) program from Ozyegin University consists of an integrated structure of two separate programs, thesis and non-thesis, with an experiential and unique setup.


The research and design oriented integrated program inquires the subject of all kinds of urban practices that are engendered and produced by cities in general, and the city of Istanbul in particular.

While focusing on architectural issues in the urban context, the program aims to transfer new approaches to the fields of research and practice through the use of critical, experimental, participatory, creative and unique methods. Based on the view that design is an analytical and creative way of thinking, the program aims to present a wide variety of research including approaches from different disciplines and practices. The program offers the students the opportunity to evaluate social, cultural, ecological and technological problems within the framework of different contexts, while encouraging them to deal with complex urban and architectural issues.

The City and Architecture Integrated (Thesis) Master's Program from Ozyegin University has been structured through a holistic understanding of the theory-practice unity of the architectural profession. This understanding can be seen both in the partnerships of the two programs, allowing an integrative approach between courses, workshops, seminars, publications, exhibitions through the unique structures of the programs.
