Overview

Students earning a bachelor’s in interior design learn about the application of basic design principles and elements to the built environment and learn to understand interior volumes, spatial relationships and application of color theory.

The Interior Design program at Maryville University includes the study of research and visualization methods, architectural principles, human factors, color, lighting, and the latest computer-aided design technologies. 

Students also develop a diverse and professional portfolio and participate in the senior show. A required senior capstone project is the culmination of a student’s design skills, techniques, practices, creativity and values.

Professional Partnerships

Maryville interior design majors acted as design professionals to establish a new home for the Chinese Education and Culture Center in St. Louis. This professional practice allowed students to experience the design process through experiential learning with the Culture Center.
