We are a two year Associates in Applied Science degree. When our students graduate, they have the technical skills to go into the workforce. We have an
open enrollment policy. You can start in the spring or the fall
and basically you just need to meet the admission requirements of the school and then declare your major as Interior Design and then you would start with us your
first semester. This is a much more technical field than a lot of people think. We teach Interior Design not interior decorating so there are building
codes as well as technical computer programs being able to communicate across industries so not only within the interior design field but also within architecture and engineering. So it is much more
technical. We’re also situated within a department that has an
architecture program and so we do a lot of combined projects with them so the students can have a real world experience with their work. We have classes that focus on how to
take criticism well, how to find clients, how to market yourself,
design presentation, and design communication. Communication biggest thing, and so we spend a lot of time majority of our classes focusing on that one way or another. The written aspect, we focus on construction drawing and all of the different
pieces that need to go together to create a complete design package. We have a
business course that focuses on how business with interior design tends to work. We also encourage our
students to do co-ops or just take advantage of other
opportunities that may come along that introduce them into the business world
and we do a lot of community involvement. For the last seven years we have been
involved with the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore spaces event and it’s a wonderful opportunity for us.
We do it every fall with our second year students and we take between two in
three weeks out of class time and actually go over to Habitat
and what they’ve done as part of the event is each designer design team gets a twelve by twelve foot space with three walls to go in and design and/or decorate using objects and materials found in ReStore that get repurposed, refurbished, reused, what have you, into complete spaces, meeting a particular theme and room style that we’ve already chosen and so it’s
a great opportunity for the students to do you really quick fast thinking design.
It’s also part of our mission to incorporate academic service-learning into our program so the students use it is not only a fun experience where they get to have instant gratification of “Here’s my design
here it is actually created within less than a month,” but
they focus on teamwork, quick decision
thinking, problem-solving, as well as community
involvement. You know, we really believe in giving back to our community. Interior design is very rewarding. Part of design that
interior designers focus on is really the part that impacts you on a daily basis.
