Course content

Push your interior design practice and spatial thinking beyond existing boundaries, towards speculative, analytical, and entrepreneurial approaches that extend from the room to the city. Make a positive contribution to society, health, and planet through ethical and systemic innovation in the built environment.

In a world that will soon be 70% urbanised, and where humans spend 90% of their time indoors, future interior design professionals have never played such a central role in improving the quality of life through innovative and thoughtful spaces, services, and experiences that are connected, shared, and intelligent.

By studying MA Interior Design Innovation at ARU, you will develop the theoretical, practical, and leadership skills, and understanding and knowledge critical to creating dynamic and future forms of living, working, learning, and relaxing.

You’ll gain a broad understanding of future and smart cities from the perspective of interior design, and tackle mental, physical, emotional, and social health and wellbeing issues in a global context by rethinking existing spaces, environments, and experiences. These spaces could include retail; exhibitions; entertainment; leisure; housing; hospitality; urban and human interactions; transport and mobility.
