The four-year first professional program leads to the Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degree. It emphasizes rigorous professional preparation, integrating the complex aesthetic, technical, and theoretical aspects of commercial, institutional, residential, and product design. Classes are small, typically with only 15-17 students, and program facilities include design studios equipped with individual computer work stations outfitted with leading industry software including AutoCAD 2005, 3D Viz, 20/20, Adobe Photoshop, Sketch Up, and Adobe Illustrator.
Students in the Interior Design Program at ISU participate in studio projects, critiques, exams, design competitions, presentations, and research papers. Outside jurors frequently participate in student critiques. The program shares the university and department's commitment to experiential learning, and community-based projects are frequently undertaken in design studios.
Starting in January 2009 all Students enrolled in the Interior Design Program at ISU will be required to be active members of the ID student organization (IDEA) as well as active student members of the three Interior Design professional organizations: American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and National Kitchen and Bathroom Association (NKBA) to further enhance their future professional careers. IDEA as student organization has a student chapter for each one of the professional organizations. The IDEA officers will provide further information about these and other memberships as well as scheduled IDEA meetings during the first couple of weeks of each semester.
