Undergraduate Program

Program Description:

The curriculum is organized around studios which prepare the novice designer to deal progressively with larger and more complex interiors and greater technical detail. The studios enable students to synthesize knowledge from parallel courses in history, art, technology, drawing and principles of design. The first two years are intended to develop an understanding of different concepts of design in form, material, space, composition, and introduce the fundamentals of total interior space planning and design. The third and fourth years provide the opportunity to specialize in different interest areas such as: computers, new materials and technologies, humanities, social sciences, safety, special needs of the handicapped, and elderly etc. Computers and CADD (Computer Aided Design and Drafting) are also integrated into different levels of education.
