MASTER PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

In the Master’s Programme in Interior & Living Design, students will consider a wide range of design practices as they learn to shape the space of interiors. They will be inspired to overcome disciplinary boundaries, make choices that are more sophisticated and more daring, and cultivate an attitude of continuous inquiry into the material and immaterial aspects of space. Students will learn the theory, best practices, and methodologies, they need not only to solve problems creatively but to define problems as well. As students collaborate with their international peers on company projects that re-invent the interior domain, they will come to place their own work within the context of the field. Milan is an ideal place to study interior design, with its long tradition of experimenting with and solving the design challenges of everyday life. It offers a variety of exemplary historical and contemporary interiors for their to visit and take as inspiration.
