Program description

Radio, Television and Cinema

In recent years, the audiovisual industries have gained a great momentum in Turkey. Filmmakers receive international awards at major film festivals, and Turkish series are watched by millions worldwide. Taking advantage of new media possibilities, these fields go beyond all borders and create their own audiences. These developments require a new understanding and know-how of cinema and broadcasting that is independent and creative.

Why KHas Radio, Television and Cinema?

Our curriculum is taught by a first-rate faculty comprised of graduates of internationally renowned universities and experts who actively work in the industry. Through effective advice offered by this faculty, our students are guided at the end of their second year towards tracks that will provide them with a specialized set of skills. They are free to choose either Cinema or Broadcasting as a specialization track. Alternatively, they can select to complete a liberal arts program by taking courses from a wider selection of elective courses.

The track system allows our students to receive a comprehensive education in the wider field of communication, while also acquiring expertise in a specific field. At graduation, students who have completed a track receive a certificate of proficiency along with their diplomas.

Additionally, they can of course complete a double major and/or a minor program to expand their fields of expertise.
