Interior Design

The Interior Design program prepares students for thriving careers across the varied sectors that define the architecture and design professions. With a presence of nearly 40 years at Baylor, the program has been continuously accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) since 2005. Students learn to apply the design process and technical skills to creatively solve design problems. The Interior Design program is a studio-based major. A sampling of required courses include:

  • History of Interiors
  • Lighting for Interiors
  • Building Materials and Finishes
  • Studies in Sustainability
  • Space Planning
  • Interior Design Graphics

Interior Design students must complete an internship with a qualified interior designer or architect for course credit. Our students have interned around the globe in a wide variety of design specialties ranging from Residential to Corporate to Historic Preservation.

The Interior Design program also offers an opportunity to study architectural history and the decorative arts in a summer study abroad program. Past destinations include Great Britain, France, Italy, and the Netherlands. This course is an exciting way to learn about architecture and design while experiencing some of the most iconic examples of architecture, design, art, and culture in the western world.

Upon graduation, Baylor’s Interior Design students gain employment in top-ranking, global architecture and design firms. Many graduates also continue their education by pursuing graduate degrees in architecture, interiors, historic preservation, and the decorative arts.

Interior Design students can live at the Fine Arts Living-Learning Center in Baylor's North Village. Living-Learning Centers are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together.
