About Florida State University
The Interior Design curriculum at Florida State is both demanding and rewarding and covers all areas of commercial and residential design. Design principles are applied to specific interiors including offices, restaurants, retail and hospitality venues, banks, healthcare facilities, as well as single and multi-family residences (including the special housing needs of the elderly and differently-abled.) Computer technology, and aspects of universal design and sustainability are spread throughout the course of study. The value we place on a global experience is underscored by a 22-year history of interior design focused summer abroad tours.
Design is essential to the physical and psychological well-being of the human experience through function, space, form and aesthetics.
Interior Design applies knowledge, skills, critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, cultural awareness and social responsibility to this philosophy.
The mission of the Florida State University Interior Design program is to educate learners to contribute to and advance the discipline and profession of interior design.
The program will instill in learners technological and graphic proficiencies including an understanding and sensitivity to history, environment, codes and standards, and human response. The programs academic objective is to promote the application of knowledge and skills to positively impact human culture.
The department offers the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts degrees with many areas of minor emphasis available from other academic disciplines. The undergraduate program is fully accredited by the national accrediting agency, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (formerly known as the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research or FIDER). We are proud to state that our program has been continuously accredited since 1975.
The department also offers the Master of Science First Professional degree for those candidates without an undergraduate degree in interior design or architecture. This portfolio tract of courses fully prepares candidates to enter the profession and sit for licensure. The Master of Science, Master of Arts, and Master of Fine Arts degrees are available for candidates already holding a bachelors degree in interior design or other related and approved design discipline. Our Post-Professional program is especially responsive to those graduate students wishing to enter the field of design education.
The program is supported by an industry Interior Design Advisory Board. This 14 member board, composed of practicing designers (many of whom are alumni), and industry leaders work to provide continuing avenues of excellence for students and faculty of the program.
