Undergraduate Progam

Design education in IARc is centered on the studio, a physical and intellectual place where ideas are transformed into physical form that includes interior products such as furniture and larger scale interior spaces and buildings. The 4 year Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree is a first professional degree that prepares students to enter interior design practice although our graduates also pursue careers in product design, community-engaged or public interest design, web and graphic design, and digital fabrication. Our graduates are recognized in the field as thoughtful designers who can think and learn and do.

Graduate Progam

Our Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Interior Architecture offers students a venue for advanced investigations of the built environment in close collaboration with faculty mentors. It is designed to be both studio and research intensive. Students can tailor the curriculum to their specific interests and professional aspirations, mixing and matching different areas of focus such as human environmental design, product design and historic preservation. 

And no matter what we do—from scholarship to research to community engagement—our work is anchored in sustainability and design that promotes social, psychological and ecological well-being.
