Program Description:
The Interior Architecture master’s program aims to provide students in gaining specialization in various areas of interior architecture. Besides gaining knowledge through scientific research, they are encouraged to evaluate and interpret this knowledge and thus discover their creative identities. The program provides opportunities for advanced studies in both professional and academic fields. In this way, graduate students can both carry on with their studies in the university and in the professional life to serve the needs of the public. Basically, it is hoped that graduate students will have a role in the development of living standards. For that reason, they will be equipped with academic knowledge and required to study in relation with other disciplines.
