Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Architecture and Design

The interior design curriculum is a rigorous course of study which combines technical courses, design studio courses, humanities, and a wide choice of electives. Through course work and field study experiences, students develop specialized problem solving skills and knowledge for the analysis, planning and design of interior architectural environments. They apply the use of lighting, color, mechanical systems, and furnishings as they design spaces for both residential and commercial settings.

Beyond the professional core, students are encouraged to pursue interests related to horticulture, theater design, historic preservation, business, or other personal interests.
