BA Interior Design
In year 1 you will develop your skills in freehand drawing, model-making and computer software in order to create 3D interior environments. The emphasis is on idea development through drawing, then exploiting the potential of digital software to further develop concepts in virtual environments.
In year 2 specialist studies of commercial and retail interior design are introduced, these relate closely to current and developing practice in the design industry.
By year 3 you will be expected to be fluent with a range of 2 and 3D design software programmes. These skills will be used to develop your final project around current issues in design and commercial practice.
Design history and theory units aim to develop your visual and intellectual awareness. Year 1 provides a chronological overview of design history, year 2 adopts a more thematic approach to design in relation to the broader context of the city. Year 3's exploration of ethical and forecasting issues provide opportunities for the development of critical abilities in order to articulate alternative points of view.
