Those choosing to complete their bachelor of fine arts in interior design at Samford will engage in a curriculum sequence whose content adheres to CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) standards. The program prepares design students to combine aesthetic values with practical needs and realities. Program graduates weigh design decisions with social, cultural, and ecological context in mind. Based on a foundation in fine arts, the students utilize a holistic approach that integrates interior design with architecture; stresses the three-dimensional use of space; considers the user’s awareness and experience of space; and incorporates the necessary understanding of codes and life-safety issues.
Housed together with interior design, these students take certain design courses and studios jointly, work collaboratively on projects, and share in each program’s design education and resources. This unique integrated approach to design heightens students’ awareness of comprehensive design goals and solutions.
