  • Course description

    The Master of Fine Arts - Post-Professional Level (MFA-2) in interior design is a full-time 60-credit program for those who have undergraduate degrees in architecture, interior design, or closely related fields. The program focuses on advanced studio and academic research in history, theory and methods as they relate to an interdisciplinary approach to interiors and design.

    Admission to the MFA Post-Professional degree program requires submission of a portfolio demonstrating the applicant's creative abilities and professional work.

    There are four components to the MFA program: a core design studio sequence, specialty studios, lectures/seminars and electives. The core design studio sequence consists of a series of experiences of increasing complexity culminating in the thesis studio. The thesis (11 credits), consists of 3 credits of directed research followed by an 8-credit studio project. Each student must demonstrate originality, research and design skills, and creative capacity to resolve advanced problems in design. The thesis is presented to a graduate faculty jury for evaluation.

    Completion of the full-time 60-credit program with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is required for the degree. Forty-nine (49) credits are in required courses and 11 credits in elective courses.
