DesignIntelligence Ranks Drexel Interior Design Programs among Top in the Nation

January 3, 2008

DesignIntelligence, a bi-monthly journal published by Greenway Communications for the Design Futures Council, ranked Drexel University’s interior design programs among the top in the nation.

Housed in Drexel’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, the undergraduate interior design program was ranked 10th in the nation, while the graduate interior design program was ranked 13th. In the East region, the undergraduate program was ranked 4th and the graduate 5th.

“The success of our programs can be attributed to the foresight in developing an innovative and unique curriculum,” said Allen Sabinson, dean of Drexel’s Westphal College. “We are able to deliver a dynamic, rigorous experience with relevant coursework and exceptional faculty that prepare our students for the national and international design industry.”

DesignIntelligence is the Design Futures Council’s bi-monthly “Report on the Future” and the repository of a vast wealth of timely articles original research, and industry news. In 1993, a network of 26 regional and national design firms began sharing ideas, benchmarks and proprietary financial analyses with one another, and began shaping DesignIntelligence. Through academics grounded in problem-solving design studios, cooperative employment, and dedicated faculty, Drexel’s interior design programs prepare students for leadership positions in the interior design industry. Within the context of increasingly more complex design projects, the behavioral, technological, and aesthetic aspects of interior design are explored. The undergraduate interior design program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD).
