Whether as intimate and familiar as a home or as dramatic and monumental as an international airport, our surroundings have a significant impact on the way we live. Interior designers recognize the importance of this impact. They create distinct, responsive, functional, and dynamic environments for living and working. These environments are shaped through the understanding and application of theories related to programming, ergonomics, anthropometrics, egress, building codes, green design as well as formal aspects of architecture and furniture. 

As an Interior Architecture major at Ohio University, you can learn how these elements combine to meet the physical, psychological, social, and intellectual needs of people in a variety of settings. Students who successfully complete the portfolio review process become part of the Interior Architecture Program.
