About the Interior Design (ID) Bachelor’s Program
Accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation, the Bachelor of Interior Design program provides a sound curriculum that prepares individuals as entry-level interior designers. The curriculum also may serve as preparation for continued study in graduate schools offering advanced degrees in interior design or related areas.
Students participate in a wide range of design experiences: lectures, studios, seminars, group presentations and discussions, professional critiques, field trips, and field experiences. The interior design program has limited enrollment and emphasizes practical application of multidisciplinary principles to residential and nonresidential interior environments.
Sophomore Portfolio Review. At the end of the third semester, sophomores submit a portfolio with representative work from specific studio courses (ARCH 1341; ID 1385, ID 2381, ID 2385). A consensus of opinion by the faculty is required for determining recommendations for the student. Prior to being admitted to ID 3385, students who received “conditional” evaluations must have met the recommended conditions identified by the reviewers.
Laptop Computer Requirement. All incoming freshmen and transfer students are required to have a laptop computer. Minimum specifications can be found at www.depts.ttu.edu/hs/dod/computer.php.
Senior Portfolio Review. During the senior year students are required to present a portfolio to be reviewed by a jury of design professionals. This experience provides the student practice in critically evaluating, organizing, and presenting work.
Student Projects Policy. The Department of Design reserves the right to retain, exhibit, and reproduce design projects submitted by students. Work submitted for a grade is the property of the department and remains such until it is returned to the student.
Admission Requirements. For admission to the interior design program, freshmen must meet assured admission requirements and transfer students must have at least a 2.7 GPA.
