Overview

The College of Visual and Performing Arts at Winthrop University offers nationally accredited programs in art, design, theatre, dance, and music, and provides academically challenging instruction in an interdisciplinary environment that inspires and prepares the next generation of artists, educators, scholars, and audiences. We promote intellectual inquiry and collaborative opportunities that encourage each student to develop a uniquely creative vision cultivated through artistry, teaching, scholarship, public performance, and community engagement. 

The B.F.A. Program in Interior Design equips students to meet the ever-changing needs and challenges of the 21st Century by preparing them professionally to gain a working knowledge of art and design principles, skills and applications, to develop problem-solving and creative/critical thinking skills in conjunction with visual, oral and written communication skills, and to create an awareness of historical and contemporary perspectives in art and design.

Due to the prescriptive nature of the INDS curriculum, the Interior Design faculty have identified the first semester senior year as the most appropriate time for students to take part in a study abroad experience (in addition to multiple summer study options). Through a combination of studio, language and humanities courses at the abroad institution and Winthrop distance learning, students are able to study abroad without delaying graduation.
