The BFA Interior Design Program at the School of Visual Arts


– [Tina] There is no such
thing as a wrong idea. Whatever it is that you want to do, you will end up doing
it, in this department. (upbeat music) – Well, this program is
special, because it is, in New York City. So, this is the center,
this is the hub for design. – New York City is an amazing place to be, when you are studying interior design. Because there are iconic
buildings that you read about. The streets that you walk
down, fashion shows or stores, you can find inspiration in
everything, in New York City. – The classes here are run like an office. The computer programs we
have here are identical to what we have in every major office. We have virtual reality abilities here, so you can actually walk yourself, or walk a client through a project. One of my very best
employees was a SVA student. She came from here and now I know why. The students get
internships so they cross, from being a student in a classroom, to an office environment. Students get internships mostly, from the professors, who teach here. – To have the opportunity
to work for a firm, working on projects that
actually are getting built, is amazing. You’re getting to know people. You’re getting to know
designers, as well as clients. Our faculty, they’re all
working professionals. Either they have their own firms, or they’re working at large firms. – Those students from day one, they’re with people who teach and work. I think the biggest advantage
about this department, is that it’s small, and
very nurturing, and caring. – The relationship between
the students and the faculty, is really special. They care about the students. In the field, you don’t work alone, so collaboration is important
to foster in this program. – Working with others, will
help your designs get better. – [Jack] We become a family, because we’re all in the same space. – Friends that I’ve made
through this department, I feel like I’m gonna have them for life. (upbeat music)
