Bachelor of Science in Interior Design
The Department of Interior Design at Endicott College offers a four-year professional learning experience for students seeking professional practice in the design of interior architectural environments. The Department’s goal is to provide students with the problem-solving abilities and creative design skills to achieve success as the next generation of interior design professionals. The baccalaureate degree program is accredited by Council for Interior Design Accreditation (formerly FIDER).
The Department employs an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving in the interior architectural environment. The curriculum presents history of art, architecture, and interior design; a design sequence that incorporates human experience and factors, techtonics, sustainability, Universal Design, and business principles; with an integral internship component. The Internship Program in Interior Design prepares students to meet the challenges of an emerging field and see firsthand the integrated components that form the interior environment. Use of technology is essential to the program.
Students in the Department can join the IIDA (International Interior Design Association) Student Chapter at Endicott College, allowing a direct connection to the professional design community.
Graduates of the baccalaureate program are qualified to join the Interior Design profession and undertake diverse project types. Upon completion of a two-year employment, graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) Exam to achieve Interior Design Certification recognized in 22 U.S. states.
The concentration in Sustainable Design allows Interior Design students an opportunity to pursue their interest in the natural and built environments, green design, and sustainability as an area of study. Interior Design Students engage in in-depth work applying sustainable design strategies and principles. This concentration responds to the cutting-edge design practice of “integrated design” now being incorporated by the design profession.
