Msc stands for Master of Science. It is a postgraduate educational master's degree given by universities in a wide number of nations. The degree is typically studied for in the sciences and occasionally in the social sciences.
Architecture studies focuses on the history of building and home design in the context of art movements. Students might learn about famous architects, as well as different architectural styles throughout the history of America and Europe.
Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country, located mostly on Anatolia in Western Asia and on East Thrace in Southeastern Europe. Many Turkish universities (both public and private) are participating in pan-European student exchange programs (Socrates, Erasmus, and the like). Some also have agreements with non-European universities, too.

The new M.Sc. Program in Architectural and Urban Studies seeks to play a leading role in promoting this intertwined, multi-scalar conceptualization of architecture and the city, both in history and in the contemporary world and invites original graduate-level research projects about the design, production, and representation of the built environment from critical, interdisciplinary perspectives.

In our “urban age”, different design disciplines (Architecture, Urban Planning, Urban Design, and Landscape) all claim the city as their territory of concern, research and intervention. As the boundaries between these disciplines get increasingly blurred, it is no longer possible to think about buildings, building complexes and public spaces independent of the urban contexts and regional hinterlands in which they are situated. Nor is it possible to ignore the multiple actors involved when it is not just design professionals (architect, planner, urban designer, landscape designer etc.) but also political authorities, local governments, developers, various non-governmental, professional and community organizations, users and the public at large that contribute to the shaping of the built environment in different ways....

The architectural field currently undergoes significant transformations at both theoretical and practical levels due to the development of digital technologies and the rising importance of globalization processes and sustainability issues. As a result, while the content and specialization areas of architecture change, unprecedented research areas emerge. [+]

The curriculum of the graduate program in architecture includes courses which relate contemporary theories and criticism with architectural production and emphasize the relationship between architecture and other related disciplines. The aim is to produce research that reflects global advancements in the discipline with a particular focus on the specificities of the local context and to graduate experts who will play an active role in the newly emerging professional scene....

Urban built environment is transforming on a local and global scale due to the advances in information and building technologies. The impact of this transformation on everyday life and on the quality of space calls for continual renewal of the architectural discourse and practice. [+]
Urban built environment is transforming on a local and global scale due to the advances in information and building technologies. The impact of this transformation on everyday life and on the quality of space calls for continual renewal of the architectural discourse and practice. The design discourse of the 20th century and the conventional methods and approaches which distinguish between architectural research and architectural design are not entirely valid for the architectural production of the 21st century. Architectural design practice should be structured anew as a process and method of research.
The Advanced Architectural Design Program at the Department of Architecture in the Izmir University of Economics is a design-based-research program aimed at advancing the discourse on architecture through design work. Accordingly, the program offers a studio-based curriculum wherein the design studio is a research laboratory focused on advanced design thinking in three primary clusters:... [-]

Master of Science in Architecture
The department of architecture was established in 1995 as part of the Graduate School of Engineering and Sciences. The Department offered only graduate programs leading to masters and doctoral degrees until 1998, when the undergraduate program was launched. The Department of Architecture aims at education innovative researchers in architecture, and combining excellence in education with cutting edge research.
The objectives of the graduate program are: Graduating students with a high critical-capacity, theoretically equipped, having the abilities to develop new perspectives and researching with contemporary methods and tools; and producing information for the use different accumulations and technologies both in the profession and, in general, for the benefit of society. The graduates play active roles in Turkey and international platforms. As part of its research objectives, the Department focuses on uniting theory with practice, through collaboration links with entities across IZTECH campus and within the IZMIR Technopark Area. The education staff consists of young and energetic academicians who are graduates of various top-rated national and international schools. Graduate students have the possibilities of being incorporated into a project or conveying their dissertations in a research project supported by the institution.... [-]
