Degree Programs

FIT has an MA degree program in Sustainable Interior Environments, focusing on environmentally responsible design. The program was approved by SUNY State Education department in June 2010, and was implemented for the first time in Fall 2011.

The program was developed for established professionals including practicing interior designers, architects, facilities planners and managers. It addresses the challenge of designing for the “triple bottom line”: supporting practices and creating places that are environmentally, socially, and economically sound.

The program's intensive, highly-structured curriculum focuses on the study of the principles and theory of sustainable design for human interior environments, and the application of those principles through the design process. The intensive 2-year program is structured as a part-time evening/weekend 36-credit program.

Courses in the program include four segments of Graduate Seminar, two segments of Environment Behavior Research, Ecology and the Human Impact, Harvesting Daylight, Universal Design and Ergonomics, Chemistry for Interior Environments: Seminar, and more...
