College of the Extended University

Master of Interior Architecture

Offered in Partnership with UCLA Extension and Cal Poly Pomona’s College of Environmental Design, Department of Architecture


The Department of Architecture offers a program that leads to the degree of Master of Interior Architecture, offered collaboratively by the College of the Extended University and UCLA Extension. Most of the classes are taught at UCLA Extension facilities in Westwood in Los Angeles. 

The Master of Interior Architecture is a professional degree (M. INT. ARCH.) and is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation. The M. INT. ARCH program accepts students from varied academic backgrounds, including non-design disciplines for a four-quarter program requiring 63 units of academic work at a cost of $500 per unit. For students with no previous study in interior architecture, six quarters of prerequisite work (82 academic units) precedes the final four quarters of the Master of Interior Architecture program. A culmination Master’s project must be completed in this program before the Master of Interior Architecture degree is granted. The 82 prerequisite units are offered at classes through UCLA Extension.

The program particularly serves career-change students seeking to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming interior design professionals.
