The Master of Interior Architecture is a professional degree (M. INT. ARCH.) and is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

This program is offered collaboratively by UCLA Extension and Cal Poly Pomona. At Cal Poly Pomona, the program is offered through the College of the Extended University.  The classes are taught at UCLA Extension facilities in Westwood in Los Angeles.

The primary goal for the Master of Interior Architecture program is to provide an opportunity for individuals with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree to pursue a rigorous program of part time study that prepares them to enter the field of interior design incorporating the highest standards of professional practice.

The program particularly serves career-change students seeking to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming interior design professionals.

The M. INT. ARCH program requires 63 units of academic work that may be completed in four quarters of full-time study or on a part time basis.  For students with no previous study in interior design or architecture, up to 82 academic units of preparatory work may be required.

A Master’s project is the culminating requirement for the Master of Interior Architecture degree.  Students with extensive backgrounds in art and design may qualify for advanced standing and can petition to waive certain courses.

The 82 prerequisite units are offered through UCLA Extension. Acceptance of advanced standing requires a transcript and approval from the Program Advisor, which can be arranged by appointment only, (310) 794-3747.
