Interior Design

The Interior Design Certificate Program is intended for individuals beginning a new career, augmenting an existing career, or seeking to enhance their existing art or design skills. The program is geared for the adult learner and is designed to meet the professional industry standards. Study begins with the development of an understanding of foundational design theory and leads to a translation of that knowledge into practical interior design requirements. Courses provide intensive, practical training leading to the development of a professional portfolio. The program is intended to prepare students for an entry level position as an interior designer or decorator (SOC 27-1025).
