The 1-year diploma program in Design is designed for design students, any appropriate M.A./Ph.D. students or B.F.A/M.F.A. students or working professionals in interior design or a related field who are interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of applying psychoanalysis and phenomenology to their theoretical or practical work.

The program is a full year, spanning 12 months in duration and should be of particular interest to those individuals who want intensive study in phenomenology and psychoanalysis, as they provide a deeper understanding of interior design, in a program that includes competitive tuition, publishing opportunities, and a challenging curriculum.

It requires presentation of a final design problem demonstrating an understanding of its phenomenological and psychoanalytic aspects.
