Head Of Department

It is required professional competence and a numerous responsibility towards the society to produce in the fields of Radio, Television, and Cinema, design the works produced in the appropriate format for these fields, analyze the target audience and prepare messages in accordance with the nature of the vehicles. Within the framework of this understanding, our students who study at Istinye University Radio, Television and Cinema Department will be educated as individuals who are aware of the professional ethics, the visual and textual codes of mass media and reveal their aesthetic viewpoints in their works.


One of the unique aspects of Istinye University's Department of Radio, Cinema, and Television is that it is an area that requires group work as well as individual work. Our students will gain experience in diverse subjects such as teamwork, group assignment, time and stress management, and the reflections of individual responsibility on group dynamics before entering the sector. It is among our objectives to build sectoral simulations for our students with the contribution of hands-on training that will extend beyond the classrooms. In addition, through these courses, students are expected to produce their own short films, commercials, documentaries, and to have their own portfolio before graduation.

The department's curriculum, which is based on the interdisciplinary nature of the field, includes courses that aim in establishing the theoretical infrastructure and gaining technical competence in the sector. In addition to compulsory field courses, our students will be able to take elective courses with the guidance of their academic advisors and specialize in the field they want.
