Concepts of the program include characteristics and performance of textiles; selection; arrangement of furniture and accessories; computer-aided drafting skills; art principles; decorating and design skills; space planning; materials and sources; barrier-free interiors, graphic presentation, architectural design, history of interiors and business management techniques. The A.S. degree program will also include safety, consumer and economic education; communication, computation and human relations skills; and instruction related to rules, regulations and legislation.

Graduates may secure entry-level positions with architectural firms, interior design studios or with related businesses specializing in interior furnishings.

The State of Florida requires the minimum of an associate in science degree and an additional four years of work experience before one can apply for state licensing.

It is essential that students contact an academic advisor for course information. Not all design courses are offered every term, and there are many prerequisites. Design packets are available to aid in advising.

Completion of this program, along with four years of work experience, will prepare students for licensing in the state of Florida, which is required to work as an interior designer.
