Situated within the Department of Architecture, the Interior Architecture Program provides a comprehensive interior-design curriculum. By integrating subject-area course work with studio design exploration, the Interior Architecture Program prepares students to act as independent problem solvers and valuable design-team members. Shared course work with architecture in the early stages of the undergraduate or graduate curricula provides an interdisciplinary context for study and learning, leading to advanced courses and studies that explore theory, technology, and practice. Central to the program is the studio, where students gain experience with the design of interior spaces and elements, and focus on the issues and conditions related to adapting existing sites and buildings. Topical intermediate studios concentrate on specific design issues, human factors, and building types. Specialized intermediate studios focus on the programming, design, and fabrication of furniture, and on construction documents that illustrate a small design project. A final intermediate comprehensive project caps the design studio experience. Careers: Most students prepare for entering professional practice with architecture and interior design firms. Other opportunities exist in related areas such as lighting design, furniture design, facilities and space planning, sales or product marketing, branding and environmental design, exhibition design, and other activities related to the designed environment.
