Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture & Product Design

Master of interior architecture & product design

The Master of Interior Architecture & Product Design program provides a comprehensive approach to studying design. From envisioning building interiors to individual products, our students are grounded in the essential process of inquiry, design, and the making of space and form.

Our faculty prepare students to transform society with an innovative curriculum that combines the three distinct, but complimentary fields of interior architecture, product design and furniture design.

Making is an essential ingredient in our IAPD program of study. Students gain a unique hands-on experience in our workshop studio sequence.
