New Possibilities for Design

Integrating sustainable design strategies with new developments in technology and materials, the two-year, full-time professional MFA in Interior Design program prepares a new generation of designers to address social changes and demographic shifts shaping clients’ needs today. A faculty of distinguished practicing professionals work with students to imagine new possibilities for the design of habitable space. The program hosts “AfterTaste,” an international conference dedicated to exploring the connections between interior design and fields including art, architecture, film, science, psychology, philosophy, medicine, and music.

Designed for Change

The 60-credit studio-based and research-oriented curriculum challenges students to analyze the relationship between human behavior and perception of the interior. Courses investigate materials and their environmental impact, fabrication and manufacturing processes, building systems and operational energy consumption, drawing and digital representation, and the history and theory of interior design. During the second year, students develop a thesis project, written thesis book, and exhibition. This program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. 

The Urban Laboratory

Using New York City as an urban laboratory, the curriculum draws on Parsons’ long-standing connections to design firms, manufacturers, galleries, and museums. Students supplement core classes with electives offered throughout Parsons and the rest of The New School in fields such as design and technology, anthropology, psychology, and environmental and urban studies.

Rigorous Studio Experience

The two-year, full-time program is composed of 24 studio credits, 30 credits of seminars (on cultural, historical, and perceptual aspects of light), and 6 elective credits. The unique curriculum is anchored in an integrated studio experience in which students interact with peers in architecture, interior design, and product design disciplines. Projects bring together research, conceptual design development, innovative representational techniques, technical analysis, and full-scale study to uncover the experiential and social implications of illumination.

Center of the Lighting Design Community

The birthplace of architectural lighting design, New York City offers students abundant opportunities for learning and career advancement. Students also benefit from access to important built projects, industry-related activities, trade shows, conferences, and the university’s network for professional internships and postgraduate placement.

Urban Context

Lighting design is relevant to zoning and building regulations, traffic and pedestrian safety, neighborhood integration, and numerous other matters affecting the city. The Lighting Design program is part of Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments (SCE), along with closely related programs in architecture, interior design, and product design. In the open environment of the SCE design studio, students work collaboratively on complex problems ranging from single interior environments to comprehensive architectural volumes, outdoor public space, and urban planning. The Master of Fine Arts in Lighting Design program at Parsons, the first of its kind in the world, has trained leaders in this rapidly evolving field for more than 30 years. With a solid foundation in the intellectual, aesthetic, and technical dimensions of light, Parsons’ interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on human experience, sustainability, and the social impact of lighting design. Students explore the relationships between theory, technical application, energy conservation, and social and environmental aspects of electric and natural light.

This program is part of Parsons' School of Constructed Environments (SCE). Learn about the SCE community and explore our SCE blog to see what students, faculty, and alumni are doing in NYC and around the world.

Multidisciplinary Study Options

The School of Constructed Environments also offers two interdisciplinary programs that enable students to develop an in-depth technical and aesthetic understanding of the relationship between light, architecture, and interior design. Those who wish to pursue studies in lighting design and architecture can apply to the following hybrid degree programs:

  • the MArch/MFALD dual-degree program, a four-year, 120-credit-hour curriculum that combines the NAAB-accredited Master of Architecture and MFA Lighting Design programs
  • the MFA Lighting Design and Interior Design double major, a three-year, 90-credit-hour curriculum in which students develop an in-depth technical and aesthetic understanding of the relationship between lighting and interior design

Future Opportunities

Graduates are prepared for careers in architectural and interior lighting design, theatrical lighting, exhibition lighting, and equipment design and manufacturing.

A New Approach to Design

Graduates leave the program able to work in traditional design consultancies, while many elect to apply their skills in nontraditional design realms, such as restructuring services like health care and public education, initiating microbusinesses, and developing projects for nongovernmental organizations. Recent graduates have gone on to present research at the Design Indaba conference in Cape Town, open a consultancy with peers from the Transdisciplinary Design program, and take a position with the U.S. government’s first design-led innovation lab. The MFA in Transdisciplinary Design program is housed in Parsons’ School of Design Strategies (SDS), alongside graduate programs in Design and Urban Ecologies, Strategic Design and Management, and Theories of Urban Practice. In its programs and projects, SDS employs innovative approaches to design and business education in relation to cities, services, and ecosystems. Many students explore elective offerings in schools throughout the university, including The New School for Social Research and Schools of Public Engagement.

Emphasizing collaborative design-led research and a systems-oriented approach to social innovation and service design, Parsons’ Master of Fine Arts in Transdisciplinary Design program serves as an academic laboratory in New York City for graduate students seeking to define the next phase of design practice globally. The Transdisciplinary Design program was created for designers interested in developing ideas, tools, and working methods to address pressing social issues and the complex challenges of a global culture. Students work in cross-disciplinary teams, consider issues from multiple perspectives, learn from industry leaders, and emerge with a portfolio that showcases design as a process for transforming social relations and contemporary life. 

This program is part of Parsons' School of Design Strategies (SDS). Learn about the SDS community and explore our blog to see what students, faculty, and alumni are doing in NYC and around the world.

Flexible Pathways

This two-year, 60-credit program focuses on project-based work in four flexible and overlapping research pathways:

  • Systems explores ways to integrate ecological, economic, technological, and social systems to achieve common ends.
  • Sustainability considers how to build public infrastructure for sustainable practices.
  • The Social investigates the use of design to envision new modalities of social interaction and community.
  • Urban seeks ways to reshape everyday practices within highly networked urban environments.

Future Opportunities

Graduates pursue a variety of careers, including design consulting, teaching and research, business development, international development, service design, in-house design leads within government organizations and other industries, and entrepreneurship.
