For Students who have entered Prior to Fall 2013

The student moves through three phases in their course of study: Segment I is a Foundation program in which visual design skills are gained. The studio learning environment begins with design principles in an interdisciplinary setting, from which the student progresses to interior architecure-focused projects. Design media skills, including both hand-drawing and computer software, are taught alongside the studios.

In Segment II, Integration, students take advanced studios in interior architecture and apply principles of color, green design and building systems to their work.

In Segment III, Synthesis, the student completes a two-semester "degree project," encompassing the full range of skills and knowledge acquired in the program.

Segments I and II culminate in a portfolio, submitted to the faculty for review and approval to move to the next level. The student is expected to begin working in the interior architecture industry by the third semester of the program, and continue in concurrent practice with the goal of accumulating approximately 3600 hours of work experience and a practice skill level of 8 (see Practice). For a full-time student, this program can be completed in 10 semesters.
