B.S. in Interior Design

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Interior Design is a four-year Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) accredited professional degree. The minimum number of semester credit hours required for the degree, including Core Curriculum requirements, is 124, at least 42 of which must be at the upper-division level. Students are advised to complete the B.S. in Interior Design degree coursework in the order indicated within the “Recommended Curriculum” issued by the College of Architecture for their catalog year.

The interior design course content reflects our philosophy to provide the best educational experience through collaboration with allied disciplines to prepare students as future professionals and/or researchers for a globalized and challenging future. Key themes guide our curriculum plan – fostering leadership in design and professional practice through the mastery of knowledge and skills; collaboration with allied disciplines architecture and construction science and management; and outreach through service learning and sponsored programs. Our studio-based curriculum integrates theoretical, technical, and professional topics taught in lecture courses, to foster creative problem solving. Further, we have designed our curriculum with planned redundancy to optimize learning where new knowledge introduced in lecture courses is later applied in to studio projects so that students have multiple opportunities to understand, apply, and develop competency of knowledge.
