The four-year program in interior design is accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER). The curriculum leads to the Bachelor of Design degree and is an essential first step toward professional licensure in Florida, other states and the Canadian provinces regulating the title or practice of interior design.
The design process is studied and applied creatively to resolve problems of interior environments. The curriculum equips students with knowledge of design techniques, materials, resources and an awareness of the interrelated professional responsibilities of design.
Field trips are required in the junior and senior years. Students should plan to have adequate funds for field trips and design studio project materials. Internships are recommended in the summer between the junior and senior years.
Interior design career opportunities are numerous because businesses, corporations, community organizations and government agencies demand professional design services. Graduates of this program usually assume positions in interior design offices and architectural firms.
This program is limited access because of space restrictions. Entering students must consult the department adviser. All students (postbaccalaureate, junior college transfers and UF students) must apply for admission to the professional program.
* Satisfies three hours of the writing portion of the Writing and Math Requirement.
