Interior Architecture Curriculum


The Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture and Design is unique among interior architecture and interior design programs in that it draws upon the nationally-recognized strengths of the School's architecture, visual communication and industrial design programs.  This creates an opportunity for a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, professional education that focuses on the heart of a building.

This 4-year program has also been aligned with the School's accredited Master of Architecture degree.  With less than two years of additional courses, students will complete the requirements for an innovative, joint B.S. Interior Architecture and Design-Master of Architecture degree.  The Master of Architecture (M.Arch) is a professional degree that is required if an individual wants to eventually earn a license to practice architecture.
