Interior Design

Interior Design

Interior design incorporates the functionality and aesthetics of indoor spaces. Interior designers understand the relationship between human beings and the complex micro-environments that they use.

Students in Interior Design gain knowledge in programming, design analysis, space planning, interior construction, building codes, materials, furnishings and equipment. Learning to read blueprints, understanding building and fire codes, and making space accessible for all are important aspects for designers. They learn to work with architects, electricians and building contractors.

The Michigan State University (MSU) Interior Design program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accredidation (CIDA).
