About the Department
The Department of Interior Design provides an intellectually rigorous, studio-based experience grounded in the issues of interior architecture. One of the oldest programs of its kind in U.S., we offer a curriculum that balances academic study with professional training, helping students gain both conceptual knowledge and technical skill.
Our BFA in Interior Design and MFA in Design (Interior Environments) degree programs are accredited by CIDA, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation.
Our alumni are commercial designers, hospitality designers, residential designers, museum and exhibition designers and lighting designers.
We have over a hundred undergraduate and graduate students from all over the U.S. and abroad.
This studio-based program focuses on creating conceptually driven, critical holistic three-dimensional spaces, with the principles of space, form, color and light serving as the foundations of your studies.

The department’s relationships with design firms nationwide offer opportunities and access to professional critiques, visiting designers and site visits. Upon graduation, a majority of students enter the field or pursue graduate programs in architecture, graphic design and industrial design.
