4+2: Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture + Master of Architecture

Design...functionality...site positioning...construction requirements...interior usability...lighting and systems...creativity...problem solving. If you're passionate about these types of challenges, the 4+2 dual degree could be right up your alley (or hallway or duct work).

DUAL DEGREE Courses

Your transition into Master of Architecture actually begins in the fourth year of your Interior Architecture program. But you’ll already be accustomed to the Architecture discipline because here, we integrate our disciplines from Year 1.
