Interior Design

Program Mission

To rigorously engage in student-centered learning focused on the interplay between surface and volume, light and color, texture and pattern, scale and status, and movement and view in order to prepare an individual to become a specialist in the art (poetic expression), craft (technical processes) and practice (professional services) of giving physical shape and identity to the interior spaces that we move through, exist in and use in our daily lives.

The Program

The Interior Design Program is designed to prepare aspiring students to take their place as leaders in the design community. It prepares students to accept responsibility for addressing issues and solving complex problems of current and future interior environments. The Program is designed to enable students to develop creative imaginations, technical knowledge, both digital and analog graphic communication skills, ethical practices, and business insight. Built on a strong foundation of art and architecture, it is reinforced by courses in the sciences to prepare students to become high quality entry-level interior designers upon graduation.
