Interior Design program structure

Interior design can be studied at bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate levels, however this will depend on the exact country you study in. At undergraduate level you may be more likely to find interior design degrees in parts of Europe than say the US. You may find that you can only study interior design at bachelor’s level by dedicating a certain amount of credits to its study, rather than a bachelor’s degree in its own right.

A master’s or professional doctorate in design will cover interior design as your specialism.

As part of any level of interior design degree, a large proportion of how you are assessed will involve a portfolio of work, or projects where you showcase your knowledge and talent. You will also have essays alongside any practical work to illustrate your theoretical application, as well as your creative process. It’s likely that you will be assessed on separate essays to cover specific themes, styles or artists in some modules.

Interior design degrees open up a lot of opportunity for cross-collaboration with other students who are studying for different art and design degrees.

Many interior design programs will be made up of modules covering topics such as:

  • Project management
  • Architecture
  • Aesthetics
  • Materials
  • Research
  • Portfolio work
