The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) offers two Master of Architecture (MArch) with an Emphasis in Interior Architecture degrees. Unlike many other interior architecture graduate degrees, SAIC’s two MArch with an Emphasis in Interior Architecture options are housed with in an interdisciplinary educational community, providing a provocative and effective context for exploring the social and cultural implications of material and technological creative work.
Interior Architecture is a growing professional field where architects are having increasing impact. In the MArch programs, we teach through hands-on inquiry, experimentation and exploration, developing the skills and experience necessary for professional practice and the critical thinking necessary to develop new ideas and drive invention.
Coursework combines project-based design studios organized around a timely intellectual focus, technical courses in building structures, systems professional practice, and architectural technology, and electives in architectural history and theory. We encourage MArch students to develop their practice by taking courses in other departments across SAIC and by applying to AIADO’s External Partnership courses. In their final year, students complete a rigorous comprehensive studio and pursue a self-directed design thesis under the supervision of faculty in the Department.
