MA - Master of Arts
Interior Design Architecture (General)
Welcome to MA Interior Architecture and Design
This MA programme is designed for art, architecture, and design graduates who wish to specialise in creative approaches to the making of interior. The programme works contextually and aims to provide adaptive response to under-utilised built-heritage at risk.
The design studio is the vehicle for the delivery of a teaching and learning strategy which is largely project-based. This allows for the presentation of the studio as a simulated interior architecture and design consultancy. Students act as design associates in a firm with an established ethos, knowledge base, culture, documentation standards, and design approach under the direction of a team of managers.
It is foreseen that this approach will produce an enabling and encouraging work environment, which respects individual well-being, sets realistic expectations, and allows for personal development and growth.
The programme offers two pathways: Treatise by Practice and Treatise by Research; both pathways are designed to provide a platform to progress to further employment in interior consultancies or to advanced study at doctoral level.
How You Are Assessed
Formative assessment occurs regularly throughout the programme by means of student critiques, draft written assignments, and progress reviews. Summative assessment is via project presentation supported by written project documentation.
The programme offers two pathways: Treatise by Practice and Treatise by Research. Both pathways are designed to provide a platform to progress to further employment in interior consultancies or to advanced study at doctoral level.
The treatise that is prepared as the result of the practice route displays the characteristics of a ‘professional master’s degree’ as defined by the QAA (2015:5): it aims to enable graduates to qualify for entry into the profession of interior design (this may be subject to the requirements of the profession in various jurisdictions) and to provide development opportunities related to advanced employment in interior design.
The treatise that is prepared as the result of the research route displays the characteristics of an ‘advanced study master’s degree’ as defined by the QAA (2015:4): it aims to prepare graduates to advance their careers through further academic or professional study or for entering employment of a different kind in interior design.
