Department of Interior Design

Welcome to Interior Design at Florida State University

Our program, housed in the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance, encompasses a CIDA accredited undergraduate curriculum and several options for master's studies. Students focus on design theory, history, and technical skills as well as studio classes.  Studios address residential and commercial spaces such as health care, retail, office environment, hospitality, and designs for special populations such as children, elderly, and others in need of supportive housing.  The curriculum prepares students to work in interior design firms, as interior designers in architecture firms, or in a number of other design-related settings.
