The undergraduate Interior Design Program explores the behavioral, technological, environmental and aesthetic aspects of interior design within the context of increasingly more complex design projects. Combined with Art and Art History and general education requirements, a core of interior design courses creates a unique education at the forefront of design. Through academics grounded in problem-solving design studios, cooperative employment, with a dedicated faculty, the Interior Design program prepares students for leadership positions in the interior design industry.

The Interior Design Program at the Antionette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design is committed to develop the leaders of tomorrow. We believe that combining a studio-based, sequential interior design curriculum, with broad liberal arts study and the experiential learning of a well-established co-op program develops skillful designers, creative thinkers and potential leaders. We offer each student the opportunity for intellectual and personal growth through a hands-on approach to teaching, advising and collaborating.
Developing skilled designers, creative thinkers, responsible citizens and professional leaders through academic, experiential and professional learning is the mission of the Interior Design Program. We seek to cultivate students who acknowledge their responsibilities to the safety and well-being of the public and the stewardship of the environment and who can lead in a multifaceted profession and ever-changing world.
