Interior Design Program Vision
Develop globally competent interior design practitioners and scholars who excel in identifying and solving interior environment problems from an evidence-based, human-centered approach by applying knowledge, infusing creativity, and valuing the person and the environment through an interdisciplinary design process.
Interior Design Program Mission
Undergraduate students learn how to be professional interior designers who design in ways that protect people’s health and safety and improve human well-being. The curriculum, participation in related activities, and engagement with design practitioners instill in them the ability to use an evidence-based approach, cross-disciplinary theories, and content knowledge to design holistically, think critically, communicate persuasively, work collaboratively, and act responsibly.
MS/MA and PhD students learn how to pursue interdisciplinary inquiry to explore answers to pressing questions confronting people in interior environments so they can lead and serve in academia, business, and industry.
