Read a Q&A with Barbara Lowenthal, associate dean.
The post-professional Master of Fine Arts in Interior Design (MFA-2) is a two-year, terminal degree program that provides professionals in interior design, architecture, environmental design, and closely related fields with the opportunity for advanced creative and academic scholarship in interior design.
There are four components to the program: a core design studio sequence, specialty studios, lectures/ seminars, and electives. Students experience a diverse array of interdisciplinary design approaches and project types. The thesis, required as a culminating project, consists of directed research followed by a 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. Students graduate with a deep understanding of the nature of design of the built environment, the ability to articulate and resolve advanced problems in design, and are prepared to become leaders of the profession.
