The Problem statement is underlying that there are discussions regarding the name of the 3rd cycle programs. Some disciplines suggest it to be called as 'PhD.' while the others prefer to call the program as 'Proficiency in Arts'. There are problems based on the relation between the balance of theoretical and practical works in 3rd cycle thesis studies. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the general approaches regarding the 3rd cycle programs in arts in Turkey.

Disciplines like interior architecture and environmental design, etc. offer the work as both theoretical and practical proposals as outcomes of wide analysis studies composing from visual and literature based research. Departments like graphics are concentrating on the work of the final study and the main context to be the balance of practical and theoretical.
