Interior designers ask questions about the spaces we spend most of our time.  Our talented faculty are practicing interior designers who help students answer those questions by educating them to become creative, socially responsible, practicing professionals.  Students develop design skills that emphasize the imagination while taking into account the needs of the space and their future clients. 

The program’s Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) ensures that our students will have the skills and connections to practice in the field.
