Interior Design

Mission Statement

The mission of the Interior Design program is to provide students with the technical and design skills necessary to work as interior designers in either residential or commercial built environments. Public health, safety, and welfare are an interior designer's first priorities. The program emphasizes the knowledge and understanding that designed spaces must meet local and state building codes and the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act-as well as the needs of the intended use. The knowledge and skills students gain in the program include the industry's standard phases of design for the building arts; programming, schematic design, design development, contract documents, and contract administration.
