Difference between M.Sc in Interior Design and M.A in Interior Design 

One is an arts stream, and the other is a science stream. Technical skills and theoretical knowledge about interior design are taught in the M.Sc. in interior design. The M.Sc. Design course curriculum is structured to give students insight into the research methodology for planning, experimenting, and materialising a space for aesthetic purposes or to improve its surroundings.

People who are eager to learn about the technical, practical, aesthetic, and technological components of a space and want to understand the broad field of interior and exterior design can consider an MSc in Interior Design.

A Master of Arts in Interior Design focuses on designing and crafting abilities as well as interior design theory. This course focuses on the academic knowledge of interior design and architecture, two fields that are essential to the human environment. The course teaches students how to arrange resources and design architecture on a national or international scale in addition to teaching them how to decorate a room or a structure.
