Career Prospects: The Interior Design Architect's job is to create spaces in existing buildings. As an Interior Design Architect, you will design development projects related to household, cultural and professional human behaviours. You well get to operate in a vast array of settings such as homes, work places (services, commercial, industrial spaces), places of leisure, hospitality sector, temporary spaces (scenography, functions, fairs) and furniture design.

Interior Achitecture or Scenography?

You will be asked to chose a specialisation at the beginning of the Master's second year. The year-long project in second year, needed in order to complete and validate the Master's Degree, will have to focus on one of the two specialisations offered: INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE and SCENOGRAPHY.


As a student in the Master’s Degree of Interior Design Architect, you will get to execute layout and design projects which combine sensibility and creativity.

You will receive a high-level vocational education centered on creativity and professionalism and on acquiring new knowledge and skills in sociology, semiotics, philosophy, plastics (drawings, colors, volumes), graphics, computer graphics, concept, creativity, technology, law and description.

The program combines academic courses with individual projects that you will need to carry out (in between classes). You will have to follow the teacher's precise and targeted instructions (research, references, reports, visiting exhibitions, readings, sketches, etc.). The master's degree aims at creating synergies and breaking down the silos between the various subjects, focusing on the themes covered in the interior architecture or scenography design studio.

You will have to complete an internship in an agency for a minimum of 25 weeks. These internships are mandatory and will give you the opportunity to get some first-hand work experience. They will facilitate your integration into working life and make it much easier for you to join multidisciplinary teams and work for a design firm specialising in architecture, interior architecture or design, a fashion design agency, a communications or creative agency.
