Understanding how to incorporate design into different spaces in order to create comfortable living spaces, trendy retail spaces, or industrial workspaces require the knowledge of how objects and space work together to create a certain mood. Students who want to design spaces for others will have to learn the fundamentals of design while trying to develop their own style. From drafting ideas to buying materials, students will learn a lot about design and about their own personalities.
Interior design firms, retail companies, and architects hire those who have degrees in interior design. Students many also want to go into business for themselves. Courses include basic interior design, space planning, computer applications, project management, materials buying, and drawing. Students will learn how to draft designs by hand and using computer software that can help make the process much easier when moving objects around or removing them completely.
