Our Master of Science degree in Environmental Design focuses on the parameters of sensory-based design, taking candidates beyond the confines of style to consider the links between the psychological, physical, emotional and sensory effects of design. Our curriculum combines conceptual rigor with professional practice and a focus on theoretical thinking, technical innovation, manufacturing, fabrication and project execution.
