The objective of the program is to provide opportunities for students to develop the conceptual understanding, analytical and research skills, and technological competence required for advanced study or design practice. Whereas the undergraduate degree is generalist in character, facilitating development of entry level expertise in many design domains, the masters degree is specialist in character, enabling the graduate to develop expertise in a particular domain. Students work with their advisor to plan a program of study that uses their undergraduate coursework and professional practice as a foundation for development of expertise in a design domain of interest to the individual student. Students who do not have a bachelors degree in interior design may apply for an expanded program of study that includes undergraduate courses to support their graduate work.
