Description

The NYSID Master of Professional Studies (MPS-S) in Sustainable Interior Environments is a one-year post-professional program focused on specialized knowledge, thinking, and skills, structured to prepare design professionals to assume leadership roles in developing and maintaining sustainable interior spaces that will positively impact the world. The curriculum provides rigorous professional education in the area of sustainable design focused on the interior environment, exposing students to a range of topics, research methods, integrated design development methodologies, and sustainable project management practices. Course work addresses the history and theory of sustainability, principles of sustainable materials, natural and artificial lighting and control systems, and integrated environmental systems design and indoor air quality as well as green textiles, furnishings, and decorative elements. The program includes two major studios designed to integrate acquired knowledge and research while exploring both residential and nonresidential environments, and prepares graduates to achieve LEED AP Accreditation. The 30-credit MPS-S requires completion in one year and is structured to accommodate working professionals by offering all classes in the evening and on weekends. The program consists of two 15-week semesters composed of lecture, seminar, and studio formats followed by an 8-week summer session. All of the 30 credits required for the MPS degree must be taken at NYSID. Admission to the MPS in Sustainable Interior Environments program requires formal acceptance and a first-professional degree in interior design, architecture, or a closely related field, and submission of a portfolio demonstrating the applicant’s professional–level education and experience. The MPS-S program at NYSID is dedicated to providing students from a professional design background with a graduate-level post-professional education that concentrates in the design of the sustainable interior environments. The program emphasizes the collaborative team model, and its practical application of the Holistic Design Approach, in order to broaden our student’s knowledge of other allied design professionals by focusing on green building design principles and the high performance designs of daylighting, artificial lighting and the indoor environmental system. Graduates of the program will develop a critical understanding of the Integrated Project Delivery method, be able to apply a green building rating system (LEED), and become advocates of the built environment and the health of its community through inter-disciplinary design initiatives.
