The four year B.S.Interior Design program prepares graduates with the required experience for the N.C.I.D.Q. examination and state registration. In the course of their studies Interior Design students learn about gathering design information and problem solving in a range of actual projects, from residential to commercial design. Students further develop technical skills for expressing design solutions, using traditional sketching methods,computer aided design (Auto CAD) and 3D simulation computer programs.

Residential, hospitality, corporate offices, retail spaces and health care: all part of the SASD Interior Design Program. Most of these projects are done in collaboration with outside design firms, which gives an added real-life experience to the students and allows them to make professional connections.
