Purpose: The Interior Design program provides quality education to prepare students for entry level employment in the interior design field or to transfer to an accredited university for further education. The curriculum provides a foundation education covering a broad range of topics in interior design, art history, furniture history, and basic design. Computer aided drafting, rendering and business practices round out the curriculum. Career opportunities exist in a diverse array of fields including retail marketing, residential design, commercial design, space planning, kitchen and bath design and design support for designers specializing in these fields. The curriculum can be completed in two years; however, students may enroll on a part-time basis.
