Planning / Strategy / Design

The School of Interiors provides engaging opportunities for students to acquire background in systems planning and strategic thinking through the design of interior environments. As the only accredited program in Kentucky within a researchbased institution and a college of design, students immerse in a process-driven approach to design in an environment that fosters interdisciplinary study within a collaborative community.

Graduates of the program practice around the world and have been recognized at the highest level of the profession. Through studio, classroom and real-world assignments, students specializing in interior spaces learn to solve complex organizational problems associated with work, place, experience and performance. These professional skills prepare students to handle the aesthetic and technical aspects of projects, communicate with clients, and manage business and logistical requirements.

Students interact with regional, national and international design professionals through shadowing, education abroad, lectures by noted speakers, field experiences and other activities sponsored by the College. Graduates from the School of Interiors begin their careers in a variety of settings including interior design firms, architecture firms, corporations and public institutions. Students may also pursue graduate post-professional education to cultivate an interior environment design specialization.


The School of Interiors is a professional degree program accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA). This accreditation ensures professional training for entry into the practice of interior design and the educational foundation that will allow for professional testing (NCIDQ), certification or licensure at the individual state level.
