The Interior Design certificate develops students’ knowledge in space design, materials and furnishing. Interior Design is not just decorating; it involves many aspects of architectural design and planning as well. Students will apply the principles of good design when planning the arrangement of furnishings and aesthetic details for an environment in which people live and work. The use of CAD (computer assisted design)/ AutoCAD software will be introduced. Students will also learn the principles, methods and tools for establishing and running their own Interior Design business in the Small Business Management course. The Internship provides the “capstone” that synthesizes the student’s learning in a directed portfolio project.

Upon completion, the Certificate in Interior Design is awarded.
