The Department of Interior Architecture and Design, housed in the College of Fine Arts, encompasses a CIDA accredited undergraduate curriculum and a one-year master of science (M.S.) degree or a 2-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree. Students are exposed to design theory, history, technical skills, and participate in studio classes addressing residential and commercial spaces including health care, retail, office environments, hospitality and designs for special populations such as children, elders, and others in need of supportive spaces. The CIDA accredited curriculum prepares students to work in interior design firms, as interior designers in architectural firms, or in a number of other design-related settings.
The Department offers both Bachelor’s and Master’s programs in interior design. The Undergraduate Program has been fully accredited since 1975 by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA). Both the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs are accredited by the National Association of Schools
