Award-winning. Unique. Interior design with a purpose.

Anderson University's School of Interior Design teaches students how to create environments that protect the health and safety of its occupants. You'll learn to design for homes and commercial spaces. You'll explore what to consider in planning interior space from a children's hospital or high-end resort to a church or school.

The School of Interior Design offers a BFA in Interior Design, one of only nine Christian schools in the country with this program. Graduates of our program thank us for giving them not only the knowledge to pass the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ); LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Associate exam, and the WELL Accredited Professional (AP) Exam, but for instilling within them an exceptional work ethic to excel within the field.

Access to influential designers, employers

We'll connect you. From internship opportunities in New York City and Miami to regular school trips to design centers, firms and museums in Greenville, Atlanta and Charlotte, you'll have access to award-wining and influential designers and employers.

American Society of Interior Designers (ASID)

You'll become part of a very active chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), whose faculty advisor was recently named Faculty Advisor of the Year by the national organization, and whose members win national and regional design competition scholarships.

Your future as a designer

Our graduates, who've won numerous awards, enter top grad programs, work internationally, and have been featured on cable's HGTV and Bravo, also will help you grow and seize opportunities.

AU's rigorous interior design program will prepare you to work as a designer in many settings including within an architectural firm, residential design firm, health-care facility or interior design firm. You'll also be equipped to work as an architectural journalist or account executive for an interior manufacturer.
