The Master of Science in Interior Architecture 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. Our curriculum emphasizes the character and use of spaces, challenging our students to create environments that are responsive to the human experience.

The program’s unique low-residency model allows students to work full time while earning their degree. The online classroom has the same rigor as in our traditional classrooms, and students enrich their online courses with two weekend residencies in Boston that build communication and connections between colleagues and instructors.
