Dean's Message

The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Fine Arts at Girne American University (GAU), is a  student oriented, participatory teaching-learning environment where all kinds of knowledge  in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Graphic Design and Plastic Arts can be shared. Interdisciplinary awareness and exploration is an important part of our context here.


With its dynamic and up-to-date faculty members the GAU Architecture, Design and Fine Arts Faculty is an interesting and engaging meeting point for lecturers and students coming from different countries and backgrounds.  The Faculty thereby provides an intellectual and practical milieu in   which diverse ideas can be discussed, creative practices explored and career pathways  considered. 



We are continually developing our undergraduate and postgraduate programs and courses, with the aim of enabling our teachers and students to cultivate the needed vision and knowledge to effectively address the wide range of conceptual and practical challenges in contemporary times.


We offer undergraduate programs in Architecture and Interior Architecture, in which two separate streams are offered English or Turkish, as also in Graphic Design (English only), and Plastic Arts (English only).  In addition to these undergraduate programs, we also offer postgraduate degree studies at our Girne (Kyrenia) campus as follows: Masters in Architecture, Masters in Interior Architecture, Masters in Graphic Design and Plastic Arts (MFA), and PhD in Architecture.  All our postgraduate programs are in English language.


In addition to the multicultural and multidisciplinary environment at the Girne (Kyrenia), Cyprus, campus of GAU, students also have the chance to enhance their knowledge and wider experience by studying at our international campuses in Canterbury (UK), Istanbul and Moldova.
