Interior Design

The interior design program offers a four-year professional degree program in interior design accredited by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ). Students receive a bachelor of science in interior design, which is the first step in preparation for taking the NCIDQ exam and membership in professional organizations.

Practical studio experience builds competencies in fundamental design, materials, finishes, lighting, computer-aided design, historical interiors, professional practice, interior construction, space planning, programming, and communication skills. Most students also take field study in interior design to acquire work experience before graduation. The program requires students to maintain a minimum grade point average to continue in the program.

Graduates obtain employment in architectural and design firms, corporations, and institutions as interior designers, space planners, and in other related design positions.
