The Master of Interior Architecture (MIA) program offers an education in critical spatial inquiry that elevates and reinvents the discipline of Interior Architecture by mining and imagining human conditions in our built environment. In doing so, the program adds criticality to the profession, cultivating scholars, academics, and critics, while generating emerging and alternative professions.
The MIA argues for Interior Architecture as a unique body of knowledge, with a distinct discourse, canon, and set of methodologies, filtered through the lens of art and architectural criticism and theory. As contemporary architectural practice continues to focus on issues of technology, technique, urbanism, and other aspects of exteriority, the MIA program looks to advance the role of the human condition in the discourse, and to argue for the social, cultural, material, sensorial, and communicative realms of design.
Woodbury School of Architecture offers two Master of Interior Architecture programs:
3-year professional MIA for students with no prior degree in Interior Architecture, Interior Design, Environmental Arts, or the equivalent.
2-year professional MIA for students with a pre-professional degree in Interior Architecture, Interior Design, Environmental Arts, or the equivalent.
