Overview

The Bachelor of Interior Design degree program balances creativity with sensitive, pragmatic design thinking. Our graduates problem-solve, investigate and explore design environments where people thrive.

Engaging in interior design studios enables you to master an evidence-based design process, develop practical presentation abilities and acquire vital professional practice skills. Team collaboration among student groups mirrors industry team practices.

Observational field trips provide opportunities to connect classroom theory, such as the perception of space and human interaction, with built environments. In the fourth year, you will engage with industry mentors to research, develop and document a large-scale interior design project from initial concept to construction documentation.

Additionally, a self-directed volunteer project helps connect your passion for design to the community and the design industry. Students have worked with organizations such as the Toronto District School Board, The Naval Reserves, Habitat for Humanity, and youth and women’s shelters.

Work Placement

You will apply your hands-on, job-ready skills with a 420-hour paid work placement. Career management workshops help you to develop effective job search skills. You will find your own work placement with the support of work placement consultants and faculty – we work with business and industry contacts to help identify employment opportunities.
