Interior decorating is the art of creating distinctive and integrated interior environments that respond to functional needs and address aesthetic perceptions. The process involves the planning of space, beautification and furnishing of interiors and the documentation of design concepts resulting in a composition that conveys a sense of place. Courses are delivered in a variety of formats including lecture, studio and lab. In addition, a variety of field trips as well as a field placement component connects students with the industry prior to graduation. Graduates will have the knowledge and essential skills to interpret client requirements, create innovative interiors and pursue employment in the decorating field.
