As the department is cognizant of modern trends in interior architecture and the implications of new technologies, the Interior Architecture and Environmental Design programme from Bilkent University aims at providing a balanced education between the artistic, technological and humane aspects of the profession.
The minimum course load for the Ph.D. program is 21 credit units. After completion of the courses, the student takes a qualifying examination composed of written and oral components. Upon successful completion of the qualifying exam, the student is designated as Ph.D. candidate and is assigned a dissertation committee.
The next step is to prepare and defend a dissertation proposal. Upon a favorable evaluation of the proposal by the dissertation committee, the candidate qualifies for work towards a Ph.D. dissertation.
At the completion of the dissertation, a jury composed of five scholars, expert in the relevant field examines the dissertation for a final decision on the degree. All Ph.D. candidates are required to have at least one article accepted for publication in an AHCI, SSCI or SCI indexed journal before the final dissertation defense.
