ACADEMIC MASTER'S PROGRAMME
DOUBLE AWARD MASTER'S
The Master’s in Interior & Living Design programme is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the programme leader, and project leaders will guide you via individual coaching and mentorship.
The combination of accredited coursework and real-life professional projects gives students the opportunity to build on their academic foundation, while gaining valuable work experience directly applicable to their future careers.
Students can apply to the Academic Master’s Programme, accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, or to the Master of Arts degree with an international UK validation.
Graduates of the Academic Master’s Programmes earn a degree that is recognised throughout Europe and the world, receiving an Academic Master’s Degree (60 ECTS credits) accredited by the Italian Ministry of Universities and Research (MUR)*, in addition to a Domus Academy Master’s Diploma.
The programme consists of 5 modules, including a curricular internship and a final project workshop.
* The academic Master’s Degree is awarded by NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti.
The Double Award Master path allows students to obtain an Academic Master validated by the Italian MUR and a Master of Arts, with international validation in the UK from Regent’s University in London.
Students integrate additional lectures and a more in-depth individual project to their 5-module programme that includes the curricular internship and final project.
The UK validation gives students more international recognition of their course of study and the opportunity to obtain a Master of Arts Degree (90 ECTS) awarded by Regent’s University London that allows them access to most international doctoral programs.
Within their academic year, students enrolled in the Double Award Master’s Programme, have the opportunity to spend a week at Regent’s University London for a London study trip experience, with special teaching activities and visits to the most significant sites for creative trends. During their stay, students will have the opportunity to take part in tours to discover London’s most iconic places, museums and galleries. The one-week London study trip is not part of the Academic curriculum, therefore not mandatory. It is subject to additional costs covering both the cultural offer and the trip.
Interior design deeply considers the kinds of relationships, activities, and habits that a space will support. In the Master in Interior & Living Design, you will collaborate with your international peers and company professionals on projects that re-invent the interior and living domains. With cultural, social, and practical concerns in mind, you will examine materials, furniture, lighting, and emerging technologies as you plan new and innovative spaces.
The programme is addressed to candidates who have a first-level degree and/or professional experience in interior design, product design, architecture, engineering, visual arts, or other related disciplines, who wish to take their careers to the next level in the field of interior design.
All courses are taught in English. A high level of proficiency in the English language is required.
The Master in Interior & Living Design aims to train a new professional figure capable of combining technical and design skills with strategic abilities: a new professional who is aware of the bond that space creates in our minds, and who is attentive to processes and timing of project management.
Careers in the interior design field are numerous and varied. Alumni of this programme are working in the home design, retail, hospitality, event planning, furniture design, and architecture sectors.
