Return to: Interior Design--Preprofessional AAS  

This program prepares students for entry-level positions in interior design and related professions, or for portfolio preparation for transfer to out-of-state institutions. Content offerings will include fundamental design, drawing, color, space planning, and historical topics; fabrics, lighting, window, wall, and floor treatments; and professional business practices for interior designers. Technical development will include architectural drafting; preparation of estimates; design analysis; kitchen, bath, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems; and advanced presentation techniques for interior designers. Completion of requirements for this program will lead to the award of the AAS.

Students may select one of two tracks: (1) the general track, which allows students to select nine ID professional electives; or (2) the NKBA track, which meets the requirements of the National Kitchen and Bath Association accreditation, and requires specific courses instead. A grade of B or better is required in all interior design classes for the NKBA track degree. If these conditions are not met, a general track degree will be awarded. Students with the NKBA track degree will be able to sit for the NKBA AKBD examination upon graduation.
