Interior Design

Glasgow School of Art


Main Campus


Interior Design historically occurred in a hinterland loosely occupied by architects, shopfitters and decorators. It has only relatively recently begun to assert itself as a discreet profession, with trained practitioners and informed clients. As the practice has matured, the UK has become firmly established as one of its international centres, for both the practice, study and critique of the subject.

The MDes in Interior Design is a logical extension of this context. It operates a subject-centred approach and aims to create advanced practitioners by acting as a bridge between the delineated and the uncharted. As such, it provides the opportunity to explore territory more deeply than at undergraduate level and free of the confines of practice. It encourages investigation into emerging aspects of the discipline, such as sustainability, material innovation, digital presentation, information gathering, augmented realities, accessible design, the effects of globalization and online commerce.
