International Relations Office / Faculties And Departments / Faculty of Art and Architecture
   Because of the importance of architecture and urban planning at national and international levels and the rich and ancient history of the arts in western Iran, especially in Kurdistan, the University of Kurdistan launched programmes in the aforementioned fields in the early years of its establishment as a university. The University of Kurdistan commenced offering degree programmes in Architecture and Urban Planning in 1999 and 2005, respectively. 
These two departments were initially part of the Faculty of Engineering but in 2012 became part of the newly established Faculty of Art and Architecture. In light of its expansion and development plans, the Faculty of Art and Architecture is in the process of establishing degree programmes in Graphic Design as well as aiming to offer its existing degree programmes at PhD level in the not so distant future.
The newly established Department of Music began accepting students in the academic year 2016/2017. In total, the faculty currently has three departments:
   The Faculty of Art & Architecture has 15 full-time academic staff and numerous part-time staff with a total student population of 300.
