The emergence of interior architecture education as a discrete area of expertise in Turkey can be traced back to the establishment of interior decoration atelier in the Academy of Fine Arts, and the Department of Furniture and Interior Architecture in the State Applied Fine Arts School. This thesis explores the early processes of interior architecture education in Turkey by examining these first institutions providing education in the field. It entails historically grounded research in order to detect the issues that have come forward from its beginnings to the 1980s, when the field began to proliferate in higher educational institutions in the country. Furthermore, it analyzes how the Turkish experiences relate to the international context. This thesis contributes to the investigations on how interior architecture education emerged and developed in Turkey, and enriches our understanding of the field globally.
