Interior Design

Interior Designers are creative business professionals who have the ability to innovatively solve design problems functionally and aesthetically while also improving the overall health, safety, and welfare of users through design.

The Interior Design program prepares and equips students to practice and serve the community by providing education and training in residential design, commercial design, sustainability, and other areas of specialization in the field of interior design.

This highly interactive program is taught with a student centered approach within a positive and respectful learning environment. Students are provided with a combination of classroom projects, hands on training, and classroom instruction that emphasizes ethical, creative, technical, and responsible problem solving through design.  Students study all areas of interior design including but not limited to: Residential Design, Commercial Design, Hospitality Design, Product Design, Sustainable Design, Historical Design, Photoshop, SketchUp, and Revit. Students also learn professional practice concepts and are able to apply those concepts towards assembling a portfolio and resume which are then used to obtain an internship in the field of interior design.  Additionally, students have the option of attending numerous field trips to major urban cities such as Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City and more. Other national and international trips are open to students at various times throughout the year.
