Course Information

The Interior Design major is required to take specialized courses in interior design including history of interiors and architecture, residential and commercial interior design, research and programming, professional practices, lighting, building codes and computer-aided design technology. Students participate in an internship in a related area.  Visual communication courses, such as drawing, rendering and AutoCAD, are taken in the Department of Art and Design and the Department of Engineering and Technology.

Interior Design students must pass all required Interior Design, Art, and Technology classes with a grade of "C" or higher. Any student making a grade of "D" or lower MAY NOT proceed to the next level course until a grade of "C" or higher is achieved.


Students must demonstrate successful completion of two years of the same foreign language in high school OR two semesters of the same foreign language in college.

If you do not have previous credit for the aforementioned foreign language courses, you will need to successfully complete two semester of the same foreign language in college. If two of the same foreign language were taken in high school, then enough additional hours to total the minimum 120 hours required for the degree will fulfill the language requirement.
