The interior design program is a four-year, professional curriculum accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). Accreditations are based on reviews of program competencies and outcomes. CIDA accreditation provides evidence that the competences required to become a professional interior designer are met by the program and students. K-States interior design program is within the College of Human Ecology, thus students attain a human ecological perspective on the role of interior design in meeting human needs and enhancing quality of life.
Interior designers identify, research, and creatively solve problems related to the function of interior environments in order to enhance quality of life and protect public health, safety, and welfare. Interior designers perform services such as programming, design analysis, spatial design, specifications of furnishing and materials, construction documentation, and construction observation. Interior designers use specialized knowledge of human behavior, aesthetics, building regulations, building construction systems, interior materials and finishes, furnishings, and equipment.
The interior design program emphasizes the interaction between humans and the interior environment. Students are encouraged to become professionals who design interior spaces that are sustainable and enhance user satisfaction, productivity, and safety at all stages of the life cycle. Interior design students take courses in human behavior in the designed environment, interior design, graphic communications, building construction, building systems, history of interior design, basic and advanced computer applications, construction documentation, and professional practice. Areas of focused study available to majors are diverse and include lighting, housing, design for special needs, historic preservation, and sustainable design.
