I believe that pursuing my academic career with a Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture program is an enlightening process. I have the opportunity to learn about the theoretical background of my profession, as well as improve my knowledge and way of thinking because of the interdisciplinary nature of the design-related fields. I chose to study Interior Architecture (with thesis) Master’s Degree Program at Yasar University as my main focus based on the “Fictional Spaces”. I have a chance to take related courses with my research interests and, in parallel with, reading articles within the scope of the Master Program courses helps me a lot in terms of enhancing my cultural and theoretical knowledge. Learning from various designers/professors who have different backgrounds and having discussions with them throughout my courses is, I think, what makes the Master’s Program a unique experience. Studying at Yaşar University, even though I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the same university, has been a refreshing experience as it is an encouraging process in terms of conducting researches to be presented in conferences or published in journals. I believe that pursuing a Master’s Degree amplified my thoughts about my plans for doing more academic work.

My name is Layal Al Sahli, and I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree at Yasar University. a Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture at Yasar University has contributed greatly to both my academic and work career, as it has broadened my abilities within the field. My undergraduate program was from a different field, I graduated from Visual Communications with a minor in Marketing. I am thankful for the opportunity to change my career path towards something I am more interested in. Yasar University has been a great place to study interior architecture; which I can honestly say has been a passion that I have been wanting to pursue for many years. My journey throughout the program began with learning the basics through undergraduate courses to strengthen my foundation and enhance my core knowledge on the subjects provided, I then extended my knowledge through advanced projects and research. Upon starting my Master’s degree, I never expected that my undergraduate and my post-graduate majors would be similar, however as I deepened my knowledge in the new field, I realized that the two fields strongly relied on one another in the corporate world. The program allows students, such as myself, to challenge oneself through both the practical and research projects. Furthermore, the university takes a strong interest in its’ students providing us with ongoing encouragement and enthusiasm while offering us optimum academic opportunities, such as working on promising papers and publishing them to journals. The Master’s program has encouraged me to further my studies in customer experience within an interior environment. I would like to end by stating that being a student at Yasar University has obliged me to challenge myself in different fields which have resulted in greatly strengthening my abilities to fulfil my career goals.
