Students gain skills and knowledge in ideation and concept development, materials and construction, life safety codes, accessibility and business practices. Graduates are academically prepared to take the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) examination, which must be passed to register as an interior designer in Texas and many other states.
Students are required to pass a Proficiency Review after completing their first 18 credit hours of interior design and art courses. Information regarding Proficiency Review can be found on the Proficiency review.
