Master of Science
The MS in Interior Architecture offers the latest problem- solving methodologies, current technologies for digital visual expression and integrated sustainable practices that are being used by today’s professionals. Many faculty members at Jefferson are experts in these very areas. They share knowledge and provide students with exposure to a range of real-world experiences.
Areas of study include: foundation two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, advanced spatial/interior design, analogue and digital representation techniques, programming, sustainable design, building structures, construction methods and technologies, building systems and lighting, colour theory, design detailing, materials, finishes, codes, barrier free design, universal design, professional practice, and ethics. They will be taught via a combination of theory and application.
Graduates will be able to immediately assume roles in design, production and management and advance to leadership positions. Furthermore, they will be able to sit for and pass the National Council for Interior Design Qualification certification exam, which is a prerequisite for licensure in many jurisdictions. They will also be eligible for membership in professional associations such as the American Society of Interior Designers and the International Interior Design Association.
