Message from Faculty

We look forward to see young people in our faculty who are determined to walk with us on this art-filled path, who are enthusiastic to see the beauties around us and make them visible and who are willing to enrich themselves and their lives with art.

For young people who cannot find time because of running, and live in a race but cannot see their target, art is a magnificent refuge to find themselves and discover their talents. Our faculty provides education with this in mind and strives to ensure that our students look at the future with confidence. Because a person’s self-knowledge, finding it and living in peace with it is the goal of life, but it is gained only with the help of art.

Art is an indispensable force in the valuation of our lives, which has existed since the beginning of human life. Haliç University Faculty of Fine Arts, which accepts “Art as a guide to social life”, is a well-established educational centre that strengthens its past, but never lives in it and improves itself with its knowledge.

Therefore, our graduates will be able to work in animation studios, television establishments, film studios, advertising agencies, multimedia production companies and many other organizations.

Visual Communication Design

At its most basic level, visual communication design is a creative process that combines the visual arts and technology to communicate ideas. It begins with a message that, in the hands of a talented designer, is transformed into visual communication that transcends mere words and pictures. By controlling color, type, movement, symbols, and images, the visual communication designer creates and manages the production of visuals designed to inform, educate, persuade, and even entertain a specific audience.
