Where to Begin

All students should begin by taking INT105, Introduction to Interior Design, which is an overview of all that the profession of Interior Design entails. Those pursuing the AAS Degree should also take INT100, Interior Design Drafting (or DFT121 Introduction to Architectural Drafting), which is a prerequisite to many other classes. From there, look at the Required Courses and select others that are labeled “Prerequisite: None”. Your schedule is based on how many classes you can take each semester, how flexible you are to take classes during the day or at night, and whether or not you have taken the prerequisites.

It is our goal to offer as many classes as possible each semester, both day and night. Currently, most 100 level courses are usually offered every semester, alternating from day to night. Some upper division 200 level classes may be offered once a year, so you will need to find out which semester they are typically offered, then plan accordingly. Many of our students are part-time out of necessity, due to work or family responsibilities, so they will obviously take longer to complete a certificate or degree. After selecting your Interior Design classes, fill in your schedule with courses in the General Education requirements (these do not have to be completed first). After your first semester, you should touch base with an Advisor or the Program Director to assure that you are taking classes in the best possible sequence.
