As a student in our Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) accredited program, you’ll be able to answer those questions by becoming a creative, socially responsible interior designer. You’ll develop design skills that emphasize imagination while taking into account the needs of the space and your future clients.

“Interior Design is much more about the carving of interior space. We deal with floors, walls, ceilings and the volumetric space between. How people use the intended space is of the utmost importance. The health, safety and well-being of the occupants, building codes, along with the aesthetics of a space are all taken into account.”
