Course summary

The MA Interiors (Architecture & Design) encourages creative investigation, experimentation and innovation in order to extend their knowledge and skills in the creation of new environments. The potential of the ‘interior’ is explored across a range of contemporary contexts, through field research and interpretation, studio workshop and media practices, critical analysis and design. On the course, students will develop their individual practice and approach to the design of interior spaces and places. This course is structured to allow them to identify and explore their own particular interests within interiors, enabling them to investigate examples of conceptual and spatial manifestation and application. Students will generate propositions to test, demonstrate and explain their approach, and to develop in-depth strategies by which their ideas and proposals can be implemented. Students will challenge and redefine what constitutes the 'interior' through experimental learning, making, designing, critical analysis, and narrative techniques. MA Interiors is part of a suite of postgraduate creative courses that follow a common structure and share a commitment to cross-disciplinary and collaborative learning and study. Students will be guided and supported by expert practitioners, academics and technical staff from a range of subject fields, and make full use of the state-of-the-art specialist technical facilities and resources on campus. This course will prepare them for a diverse range of careers foremost within the interior design, architecture and wider design industry, but also within other creative and cultural industries. These may include product, furniture, exhibition design, spatial design and more.

Critical Debates (30 Credits)

Through a series of lectures, seminars and reading groups you will explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of Interiors. With particular focus on the cultural and social contexts within your chosen discipline, you'll produce a portfolio of critical responses to contemporary debates in research and professional practice.

Developing Practice (30 Credits)

Through a combination of studio, practice and text-based methods you will explore a chosen area of your design work in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. By the end of this module you will be able to employ a variety of reflective methods to develop your own creative research proposal with the advanced communication skills to present, discuss and evaluate your work effectively.

Exploring Spaces (30 Credits)

This module will develop your approach to reflective and critical practice through the creation of a body of work that explores the relationship between place, space and its users. By identifying and utilizing research as an instrument for exploring all forms of spatial design, you will interpret the cultural and social context within interiors, develop advanced project proposals and identify the appropriate mechanisms with which to test and evaluate them.
