Interior Design Program
VMCAD – An Interior Design College for Creative Minds
If you routinely rearrange your living space to explore its options and find yourself fascinated by furnishings, materials and lighting and their effect on mood, productivity and ambiance, interior design could be the space you’re meant to inhabit. Interior designers combine different elements to create interior spaces with personal or professional personality.
While considering interior design colleges for your future, consider this – VMCAD’s Associate of Applied Business Degree in Interior Design program trains students to visualize and develop a complete understanding of three-dimensional space, as well as its form and function. Students learn to create spaces that are practical, safe, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing; to explore creative design; to understand the foundations of business and professional practices; and to develop computer-aided design technology skills. Students also learn how to solve problems of space, both visually and practically, while gaining knowledge of professional presentation techniques and technical skills that enable them to create imaginative & responsible solutions to interior design problems. An understanding of appropriate material use, code requirements, universal design and sustainability practices are also developed and stressed to students through VMCAD’s interior design classes. Interior designers must be sensitive to their clients’ needs. Virginia Marti’s interior design faculty teaches students how to communicate ideas visually and orally to their clients.
The Interior Design program culminates with a successful completion of an individual student-selected senior project which is intended to demonstrate the depth of their skill and design capability. Senior projects are reviewed by a panel of professional guest critics. By the time of graduation students will develop a final student portfolio and resume that support success in identifying and obtaining entry level positions in the interior design field. The Interior Design program at VMCAD features 108 credit hours that can be completed in eight quarters or 24 months.
