Bachelor of Science in Interior Design
The Bachelor of Science in Interior Design program at Lawrence Technological University is an accredited, professional studio-based baccalaureate degree program. It offers a curriculum that encourages students to create intentional interiors in a manner that is practically grounded, critically framed, and deeply invested in cultural relevancy and technical advancement. The program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), and is a registered campus center of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).

We balance the studio experience with courses that build the theoretical and technical skills needed for success. Students benefit from dedicated studio space and access to material, lighting, digital, wood and metal fabrication labs.
