Adult Programs: Interior Design Certificate
The noncredit certificate in Interior Design emphasizes the study of interior architecture, with requirements including Introduction to Architecture, Digital Design: Objects + Space, and Hand Drafting. The program also exposes students to contemporary design concepts, trends, and applications addressed in Design Matters and Introduction to Interior Design. While interior decor will be addressed, it is not the primary focus.
This program is ideal for those interested in developing a portfolio to accompany college admissions applications, and individuals wishing to undertake personal projects. Students interested in making a career change may opt to pursue the noncredit certificate for the purpose of learning more about the field or in preparation for pursuing a degree.
Note: Students enrolled in the Interior Design Certificate should have access to a Mac or PC computer. Before starting this program, students should feel comfortable navigating the directory structure and creating, deleting, renaming, and moving files and directories without assistance.
