Return to College of Architecture and Design Return to: College of Architecture and Design

The interior architecture curriculum is a rigorous course of study which combines technical courses, design studio courses, humanities, and a wide choice of electives. Through coursework 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.

uTrack Requirements (for students entering Fall 2013 or later)

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who enter prior to Fall 2015.
