About

The Visual Arts and Visual Communications Design program from Sabanci University offers two different tracks, namely Visual Arts where the aim is the education of visual arts and Visual Communication Design where the aim is the education of interdisciplinary audio-visual communication designers.

Overview

Over the past century, and acceleratedly so during recent decades, visuality has become pervasive in all aspects of life due to the proliferation of media-based communication devices which can be observed to have a strong basis in visuality. Thus the mission of the VACD program is to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of visuality and its applications to the domains of Visual Art and Visual Communication Design. However, our efforts go beyond a sole understanding/application of the visual fields themselves in that we also seek to bring about their integration with other creative output such as sound design, new media output, and temporally based works implemented through the diversified building blocks of our curriculum.

The interdisciplinary educational approach embraced by Sabancı University aims to provide an ideal breeding ground for the education of the "new" artist and designer.
