Do you have an eye for design? Enjoy arranging and designing space that is creative yet functional? Interior Designers can affect the mood and ambience of any situation, be it the places we live, work or play! Earning a degree in Interior Design allows you to inspire your surroundings.
Degree programs are offered online or in the classroom and range from associates degrees to bachelors or masters programs. Courses involved typically cover subjects such as computer-aided drafting and design, space planning, problem solving and the history of design and architecture. Other course work covered includes specialty design, including exhibit design, hospitality design, retail store design and corporate design. Through it all, you will gain an understanding of how to communicate interior design solutions through various forms of visual media.
One of the key foundations of being a student is building your interior design portfolio. Once a graduate with an interior design degree, you will be able to show off and display the skills that you acquired to potential employers through your portfolio of design work.
A bachelor’s degree is usually required, as are classes in interior design, drawing, and computer-aided design (CAD). A bachelor’s degree in any field is acceptable, and interior design programs are available at the associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degree levels.*
