Why Interior Design at Appalachian State?
The interior design program is a four‐year, professional degree program that leads to a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degree. Our curriculum provides an educational foundation that prepares students to enter the interior design profession and positions the student to seek professional status through the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam as well as state‐specific licensure. The program combines lecture and studio courses and is a balance of theoretical and pragmatic approaches. Environmental responsibility in design is a focus of the program and is woven holistically throughout the curriculum. The program is located within the Department of Applied Design in the College of Fine and Applied Arts. The program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
