Online Master of Science in Interior Architecture

Online Master of Science in Interior Architecture

The Online Master of Science in Interior Architecture (MSIA) is a 30-credit, post-professional online degree designed for interior designers to pursue further studies in design strategies and research or to develop a specialized area of design knowledge. 

Through fully online classes and two virtual weekend intensives, you’ll develop knowledge in the character and use of spaces and create environments that are responsive to the human experience.

*The MSIA is undergoing a strategic repositioning to best meet student and interior design industry needs. While not accepting applications at this time, we will be in the near future and encourage you to contact Dean Denise Rush for information about the strategic process and timeline. Please contact admissions for information about our related master’s programs.

Wide-Ranging Curriculum

  • Develop innovative methods of creating environments more responsive to human experience.
  • Apply knowledge gained from cultural studies and social sciences research to design.
  • Guide design strategies to incorporate input from a more diverse set of design determinants.
  • Create performance-based design solutions that demonstrate measured improvement of outcomes.
I learned so much from the MSIA program at the BAC. Faculty and course curriculum reinforced and enhanced key skills such as practicing and applying research based decision-making and critical thinking at both an academic and professional level.
