The Interior Design program is offered by Washington State University . The interior design major at WSU balances study in art, architecture, and humanities with a strong hands-on component.

All students complete a senior immersion experience — faculty-led study abroad in Florence, Italy, a professional internship, or working directly with a faculty mentor on a design project to benefit the local community.

Careers in interior design

Designers work in a wide range of settings, and WSU prepares you to be successful in any area of interior design.

A majority of designers practice at least part of the time in both the residential and commercial areas. Most commercial designers concentrate within design specialties, such as designing for the hospitality or health care industries.

Some specialized areas of interior design include adaptive reuse, restaurant design, residential kitchen and bath design, interiors for airplanes or yachts, or historic conservation or restoration.


This program is accredited by CIDA, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation.

Programme Structure

  • You will learn on your feet, with opportunities for travel and study tours, community engagement, job shadows and internships. Unique to Interior Design is the Senior Experience: offerings include  study abroad in Italy, professional internship, or community-based studio. Many interior design students choose to minor in one of the allied SDC disciplines, expanding their options for practice and graduate education.
  • The backbone of the interior design curriculum is the studio experience. First-year projects focus on applying the basic elements and principles of design in two and three dimensions. The second year focuses on residential and small commercial design along with technical courses such as materials. Upper-division courses continue to merge design with technical issues through a variety of projects ranging from residential spaces to large commercial firms.
