    Program Description

    BFA Interior Design is all about possibility—the possibility of imagining a space for people to live, work and play in and then moving that space from concept to design to reality. Taught by award-winning designers, architects and artists, students learn to integrate the latest technology and materials with time-tested processes and principles of design. The faculty and curriculum are guided by a commitment to sustainability, the interplay between art and design and the responsibility of design to address social issues.

     

    Working in an environment akin to a professional design studio, students are encouraged to think like architects and engineers as well as designers, and to take creative risks and flex with changes in our culture. With unlimited access to the department studio, computer lab and printing room, they have the opportunity to explore the power of both pencil and computer.

     

    Because good design begins with good thinking, required coursework deals with the humanities and sciences as well as the history of interiors and architecture. Students are informed and inspired by the diversity of New York City; conversations with faculty, guest lecturers and classmates; and by visits to museums, physical and virtual libraries, galleries and showrooms.
