"I believe the most remarkable quality about RISD is its student body and the various potential connections a student can make. People are very friendly and interested in sharing knowledge. My experience as a graduate student is kind of negative, honestly I was expecting more in terms of quality of education. Professors are confusing and sometimes they just care about the final image rather in the technical, practical and viability of the project. Therefore if you are interested in "real architecture", I wouldn't recommend the Interior Architecture Master because is focused on art and utopian design concepts, is not functional at all."

"challenging program that doesn't teach technical skills but instead focuses on the process of how to design."

"MDes in Interior Studies, concentration in Adaptive Reuse. Great program! (despite the lousy name...)"

"The graduate interior architecture program at RISD is an amazing program. It has a strong focus on adaptive reuse of existing buildings and architecture. This is not a decorating or interior design program. Yes the overall aesthetic is important but you will not be learning about paint color or fabric specs in this program (which is what drew me to the school). Providence is an ok little town but you are kept so busy with school work it doesn't really matter what town you're in. Boston is only 40 min away so for weekends off its a perfect escape. The community at RISD is wonderful, creative and diverse. I really recommend this program to anyone strongly interested in being pushed creatively and seeking an education in interior architecture."

"Pros: 1. RISD is a great design school and has a lot of brilliant teachers. I really enjoy the study of Adaptive Reuse which I think is quite useful in the future. 2. I've made many international students which is also a good way for study! Cons: 1. The tuition is too expensive. 2. The equipments of my department is not good enough."
