Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence, RI, US, Masters, Exhibition and Narrative Environments

In the 75-credit Master of Design (MDes) in Interior Studies: Exhibition and Narrative Environments program, students engage in a dynamic course of study focused on making interior interventions within the context of narrative environments—spaces that encompass or communicate a form of storytelling.

In providing a clear aesthetic, theoretical, and technological framework for the study of exhibition design, the program properly equips graduating students to create narrative experiences within museum settings. Students may take exhibition-related coursework through electives in other departments, such as Graphic Design, Digital + Media and Theory and History of Art and Design, or through Brown University.
