Interior Design

Creative and detail-oriented? Welcome to the Interior Design Program.

Fine tune your design skills and potential in the Interior Design Program.

If your dream is to develop your passion for detail, color and texture into a viable career, this is your place. Our rigorous design program teaches students the hand skills and visual design sense necessary to succeed. You will need to submit a separate application in order to apply to the Interior Design program. This includes submitting a digital inspiration board.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. As a CES school, we also give all of our students the opportunity to confirm their testimony of Jesus Christ, the restored gospel and the power of the Atonement in as many settings as we can. Whatever you do, we’ll be here to help you be the best you possible.

Change is in the air

Effective Fall 2019 the Interior Design Program is changing from a 4-semester program to a 6-semester program. No Spring program start will be available. The course sequences available are:

  • Fall Start, first summer (Spring semester) off (Fall, Winter, Fall Winter, Spring, and Fall)
  • Fall Start, year round (Fall, Winter, Spring, Fall, Winter, Spring)
    • (This is the only option that allows for Walking in graduation after Winter)
  • Winter Start, year round (Winter, Spring, Fall, Winter, Spring, Fall)

Students completing this degree will meet the requirements to take the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) Exam, as well as the LEED, GA (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, Green Associate) Exam.  The NCIDQ Exam is the industry standard for Interior Design Practitioners and (as of January 2019) there is legislation in 28/50 states regulating the practice of interior design via the NCIDQ Exam.
