Undergraduate Curriculum

The Interior Architecture & Design Program has two paths to enter the major. Students starting their four-year college career at FSU will take the following:

YEAR ONE

Students transferring to FSU, or FSU students changing their major after their freshmen year, may complete their first year classes in the summer. Please note that these classes often fill up fast, so it is advisable to connect with the Department the fall before or the summer you wish to start. Course taken in summer for those beginning the program are listed in the table below.
