Since 2010, the Graduate Program in Interior Design at The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture has offered students an innovative curriculum that integrates cutting-edge research, theoretical knowledge and practical application of design for the benefit of our society. In just 10 years, the program has produced scores of alumni who have gone on to work at prestigious design firms, opened their own design practices, or have become interior design educators themselves.
With students across the country returning to classes this fall, we caught up with five recent graduates of the Master of Interior Design (MID) program who are now young faculty members at other universities’ Interior Design programs. Click the links below for in-depth Q&As with each of these design educators about how they are building upon the skills and the foundation they developed here as UTSOA students to shape the next generation of interior designers and interior architects.
