MS in Interior Design
The Master of Science program in Interior Design at Drexel is an internationally renowned professional MS degree program that prepares students of diverse undergraduate backgrounds to enter the field of Interior Design. Through an integrated studio approach, graduate coursework applies design concepts, technical information and hands-on skills to the design of a range of public, commercial, residential and institutional spaces. Students learn to design interiors that answer aesthetic, social, physical and psychological needs.
The coexistence of diverse professional and educational backgrounds makes for a rich, vibrant educational community and thought pool. Working Interior Design professionals critique student work, offering exposure opportunities for students. Interior Design students are also encouraged to join local, national and international interior design professional organizations for further networking throughout their education.
Alumni of the Interior Design program are principles of their own design firms, project managers in major architectural and design firms, facilities managers, and design coordinators. About one-third of the students obtain entry level employment before graduating from the program and many hold managerial positions within five years.
