• RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR DESIGNER
If you find that furniture stores make you giddy and your television seems permanently stuck on HGTV, then a career in residential interior design may be for you. This program will give you the basic skills and background you need to start working as a designer in people's homes. You'll explore the cornerstones of good design, discover how to plan spaces so that they're beautiful and functional, and see how interior design has evolved throughout history. In addition, you'll find out how you can use the elements of design, including materials, color, textiles, lighting, and accessories, to achieve a design concept. Finally, you'll get a glimpse into the excitement of running your own design business. By the end of the program, you'll be ready to seek out clients and help them transform their interiors into satisfying spaces.
In addition, you’ll be eligible upon completion of this program to take the Residential Interior Designer Exam (RIDE) through the Designer Society of America (DSA). You’ll also receive a free one-year DSA membership, and you may be able to participate in an optional 40-hour internship through DSA (where available) if you meet eligibility requirements.
