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.
