Interior Design

Want to learn how to turn your passion for creative design into a career? When you are in a space, do you take notice of your surroundings and immediately think of ways to make it better? The interior design program at MTSU offers the skills and knowledge you need to connect people to the spaces where they live, work, learn, and play. Interior designers are trained to create residential and commercial spaces that protect and enhance the health, safety, welfare, and well-being of the public. From proper lighting to ergonomics, studying Interior Design can open up a world of opportunities for those with creative minds.

This program is approved for the Academic Common Market.

‘Priceless guidance' from faculty members

Alumna Mary Vongsaga (2011),facilities management and construction project coordinator for AmSurg Corp., Nashville, says the Interior Design program at MTSU exposes students to many facets of the field. “I've come to realize that there are countless opportunities within the world of interior design, and every craft learned within the program is used in varying extents, including space planning, project management, and being familiar with egress plans and building codes,” she says. Faculty members provided “priceless guidance,” as well as instilled values “which I continue to use in my career,” Vongsaga says.

Tapping into real world interior design

Interior Design is all about hands-on, interactive, experiential learning. Fall 2012 guest lecturer Cathy Whitlock spoke to students and faculty about how interior design influences movie and stage set designs. Whitlock, a nationally known interior designer and author who writes for The Huffington Post, is an example of the real world expertise to which students are exposed. MTSU's proximity to Nashville's progressive design connections provides students with information on opportunities in residential, healthcare, hospitality, office, and government interior design jobs.

A degree in Interior Design can lead to a variety of jobs. Interior designers work in an array of environments, including architecture and builder/contractor firms, department and specialty stores, large corporate and government organizations, and manufacturing companies.
