Interior Architecture & Design
You make environments that tell a story.
As we look for better ways to interact with our changing landscape, social fabric and community needs, the way we design our environments — our living and work spaces — matters more than ever. At CCAD, you’ll find the facilities, tools, and faculty to make your dreams of designing a reality. Our Interior Architecture & Design degree program involves research, planning, design and problem-solving through real-world exercises, as well as courses in hand sketching, computer modeling, and communications. You’ll graduate ready to translate your vision in a wide range of spaces and industries.
Effective Fall 2019, the Department of Interior Design at CCAD will formally change its name to Interior Architecture & Design.
