The 24 credit hour curriculum is designed to be a valuable supplement for many disciplines including-

  • Architecture majors will find this minor extremely beneficial when applying for internship or full time positions as many architectural firms in the country have Interior Design Division. Also Interior Design is a natural complement to Architecture.
  • Landscape Architecture majors may benefit from learning about the use of interior space when considering interior "plantscaping" for large enclosed spaces such as malls or office buildings.
  • Construction Management majors may benefit through better understanding of aesthetics and space planning.
  • Journalism majors with an interest in writing for interior design or architectural journals and magazines can become better informed writers.
  • Theater majors with an interest in technical theater and stage design may find a minor in interior design to be a natural complement to their degree program.
  • Fine Arts majors may find a minor in interior design, with its emphasis on aesthetics and the placement of objects such as paintings and sculptures within an interior environment, a beneficial supplement to their artistic pursuits.

If you are interested in applying for a minor in interior design, fill out the application form, which includes a brief written statement explaining how you feel the minor will enhance your degree.
