Interior Design Program Information

The Master of Interior Design (MID) educates students to become professionals in practice, to engage in research, and to develop a specialization in the design of the built environment. In addition to coursework, the main requirement for the MID degree is a written research thesis, adding to the greater body of knowledge.

The UF-ID MID will

  •     Explore a specialized area of interest and expertise

MID graduate students can join practices within interior design and architecture firms or other specialized fields; can achieve advanced study in areas of specialization often of interest to contract public interior design firms; have the opportunity to pursue entry-level teaching positions within interior design programs; can enter Ph.D. Programs for advanced research specialization(s) in interior design or related design disciplines; and are offered the opportunity to disseminate knowledge through publications, conferences, teaching, and collaboration with various professionals in related fields.
