Study Interior Architecture & Design in Boston

Interior designers use their talents and expertise to transform and enhance society. In our Master of Arts in Interior Architecture (formerly titled Interior Design) graduate program, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills, and passion for interior design that let you influence the way we live our lives – at home, in the office, and in our public spaces. Innovation and creative problem-solving, an understanding of human behavior, attention to the rule of law, the protection of natural resources– they all play a role in the work of the interior architect.

The Master of Arts in Interior Architecture will provide you with a comprehensive knowledge of design theory and history, communication and design skills, sustainable and socially-conscious design, lighting and furniture design, code adherence, and professional practices. You’ll also develop fluency in the use of two- and three-dimensional design software and computer hardware, essential tools for the contemporary designer.
