The School of Interior Architecture has grown by almost 120% since 2013. That tells us we’re doing something right.
In 2017, we changed our name from the School of Interior Design to School of Interior Architecture, so you would better understand what you’ll be learning. The new name reflects what our students learn every day: The intersection of math, science and art with the human sciences to create functional and culturally significant spaces to meet need and solve problems for people.
What you won’t learn
It needs to be said: We aren’t interior decorating. That discipline is valuable and plays an important role in our world, but it’s not what we are. Yes, in the School of Interior Architecture, you’ll learn about light, form and color, but you’ll also learn how those interact with structure, function, construction and architecture.
You’ll learn about building codes, HVAC systems and construction materials, so you’ll understand how they impact the use and human experience within a space. And you’ll have classes with students in the School of Architecture in your first and last years. We’re one of the few colleges who do this, and we do it to mimic what you’ll experience in the professional world. We do it to enrich your educational experience.
