Interior Design and Architecture Programs Earn Top Marks in DesignIntelligence Survey
DesignIntelligence (DI) magazine’s 2016–17 report on the best architecture and design schools in America ranks the College of Design’s undergraduate interior design program among the top 20 in the nation. The program was also selected by hiring professionals as one that best prepares students for a future in their professions.
In addition, the college’s graduate interior design program was named one of the most admired in the country for “its historically strong graduate teaching and advising as well as its evidence-based design research.”
The College of Design’s graduate architecture program was also ranked among the nation’s most admired for “its model curriculum and license-upon-graduation program.” The School of Architecture’s M.S. in architecture with a concentration in research practices (MS-RP) degree provides students with a structured path to licensure and integrates research directly into their education.
DI’s report is the result of surveys from students, deans, and hiring professionals in the disciplines of architecture, interior design, industrial design, and landscape architecture.
