Academics . Interior Architecture . Overview

Interior Architecture

Our Interior Architecture program emphasizes commercial retail, architectural, functional, and spatial design. As a student, you will study design processes, sensitivity and knowledge of material specification, and ethical problem solving. You also will learn several presentation methods, including drawing, rendering, computer-aided design (CAD), and 3D modeling.

Partnering with local design firms is one of our program’s greatest strengths. These relationships provide Interior Architecture majors with exciting assignments, such as designing restaurants, health care centers, auto dealerships, and museum, exhibition and showroom space. Additionally, you will participate in student exhibitions, job fairs, and materials workshops offered by leading furniture and materials manufacturers. You will gain a unique perspective of the industry through lectures and symposiums by award-winning designers, visits to top design firms in the region, and summer internships. Each of these experiential learning experiences will strengthen your communication skills, demonstrate industry expectations, and improve your understanding of designer-client relations. They also create a learning atmosphere of collaboration, innovation, and community.
