About our Program


NKBA MemberThe interior design program is accredited by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). 


The Department of Human Environmental Studies is housed in Scully Hall. The construction of Scully Hall began in 1968 and was completed in 1971. The four-story, 95,000-square-foot building includes many classrooms, laboratories, computer labs, study lounges and a Subway restaurant.

An Instructional Resources and Technology Lab is located on the third floor. The lab contains many reference materials, computer workstations, video equipment and equipment for making instructional materials.

As an interior design student, you have access to the drafting lab, in-house materials, a specifications laboratory and manufacturer's resources. These resources include graphic tools such as matting, mounting and computer-aided design. The Experiential Learning Lab (available only to design students) is equipped with an ipad lab in which students have the to opportunity to check out an ipad for each semester. This opportunity begins in the sophomore year.
