Requirements For: B.F.A. Major – 78 hours, 2.5 gpa


“The professional interior designer is qualified by education, experience and examination to enhance the function and quality of interior spaces for the purpose of improving the quality of life, increasing productivity and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.” (Council for Interior Design Accreditation)

Students majoring in Interior Design at Park University combine the common body of knowledge in interior design with the intellectual development found in a liberal arts education. A sequence of design studios and graphic communications studios with supporting lecture courses provides the practical content integral to the profession. Park University education, combined with work experience, will enable students to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualifications examination and become registered interior designers.

Portfolios:


All graduating interior design majors are required to individually document, using appropriate supporting methods, selected examples of their best work. These final portfolios are to be submitted to their major advisors as part of their Senior Seminar. These portfolios will remain the property of the Department of Art and Design.

Art Supplies


Interior Design majors must plan, when preparing their yearly educational budgets, to spend at least $250 per semester on art supplies. All interior design courses require varying amounts of personal equipment and supplies. Supply lists will be provided on the first day of classes.
