Interior Architecture and Furniture Design (Design)

University of the Arts, The Hague

Bachelor Undergraduate Den Haag

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The Interior Architecture & Furniture Design Bachelor programme is oriented to the full spectrum of the spatial domain: the spatial conditions that define how we experience our everyday surroundings.
Course description The basis of teaching is experimental and research-oriented. The core objective is to uncover opportunities and individual potential. Learning by doing. The strong focus on the personal, individual viewpoint and the identity of its designers is crucial from a professional perspective. Great value is ascribed to both the work process and the individual approach of the student, the objective being to develop an independent mindset, a reflective attitude towards design and the capacity to empathize. The designer with a BA of Design degree will then be able to handle any commission, without trouble and from an entirely individual approach, in a good match for the rapidly changing world we live in in the twenty-first century. After the first year of study, the programme offers a choice of a specialization major in Interior Architecture (full-time/part-time) or Furniture Design (full-time only). The course of study takes four years. The new BA of Design fits in with the teaching outlook of the Royal Academy of Art as well as national qualifications in design. Upon completion and the achievement of the BA of Design, the KABK offers the opportunity to continue a Master's education.
Study subjects After the first year of study, the programme offers a choice of a specialization major in Interior Architecture or Furniture Design. The course of study takes four years. Our didactic principle is learning by doing. The development of skills, knowledge and competences is linked to relevant assignments that preferably correspond to professional design practice. We strongly emphasise the students’ personal position and the way they approach their identity from a professional perspective.
Course objectives The core aim of the programme is the personal development of each individual student into a creative, inquisitive and independent designer. We pay close attention to discovering the potential of our students. The curriculum focuses on experimentation and research. This enables us to encourage the development of an independent inquisitive design attitude that generates unexpected results.
