Turning the spaces in which we live into truly habitable structures. That is the ultimate goal of interior design.

Interior design is more than a mere response to a purely functional or aesthetic requirement inscribed in a building program. It has undergone a radical transformation this century and has notably changed the way we conceive of space, and the way we build it and use it. New materials, new techniques, but also a new sensibility and a new narrative which has changed our understanding of our relationship with our immediate surroundings.

With its mixed format, this degree will allow all students to learn, participate and be part of the IED community in person, in physical and virtual classrooms, and remotely.
