Interior Design is a demanding profession and we work hard to simulate that environment in the studios and classrooms. By placing high expectations on students in regard to the quantity and quality of assignments we hope to prepare them for challenges of the design profession. To be successful in the Interior Design Program students must be committed to developing working skills and knowledge through self-motivated hard work. Interior designers often work under pressure to meet deadlines. Students will find that multi-tasking and honing organizational skills are vital for keeping up with class work.
Students need to be prepared to spend at least as much time (if not more) outside class as time spent in class. We have found that students who enter the program and try to work part-time are overwhelmed and too exhausted to learn. We advise students who choose to be employed, to limit their working hours to no more than 8 hours a week.
