Master of Interior Design
This degree will immerse you in an industry-partnered, project-based learning experience to address social, cultural, technological and environmental challenges associated with the production of contemporary interior environments – the spaces in which we live, learn, work and play – in a dynamic changing world.
It will provide you with an opportunity to position yourself in relation to current interior design practice through collaboration with clients, industry and a network of peers.
With an emphasis on ideas and a design-led approach to research and experimentation, the knowledge and skills you develop in this course will enable you to work in a range of practices, and to engage interior design as an agent of social and cultural change.
Graduates of this course will be highly effective team contributors with strong communication and technical skills. You will learn how to be a valuable contributor through the process of developing a collective response to real industry briefs. You will engage with clients (encompassing commercial, institutional, civic and social organisations) and industry practice partners (interior design and associated design practices) together with the student cohort on live projects and challenges.
With a strong focus on design challenges affecting the broader Australasian region, you will also have opportunities to undertake global intensives to locations within Asia.
In the first and second year you will undertake two industry-partnered interior design studios and two core subjects that will operate as a direct support to the partnered design studio project, providing opportunities to refine specific skills and design techniques.
In your final semester, the design studio will be complimented by a portfolio-based subject that will support you in identifying, evaluating and communicating key areas of interest, skills and expertise which will together form a profile of your practice, enabling you to position yourself within the design profession.
If you have successfully completed the Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) program at RMIT with a GPA of 2.5 or above you will be guaranteed entry into year 2 of the program.
