What will I learn?

The B.F.A. in Interior Design is a challenging course of study for students preparing themselves for a career in a field with enormous possibilities and potential.

The interior design program is an architecturally oriented program with emphasis on spatial design as well as surface embellishment. All aspects of space—scale, proportion, configuration, and light source, as well as textures, materials, and color—are studied in relation to their effect on the human spirit. Students begin their interior design studies in the sophomore year, working in a stimulating studio setting where the learning is collective, cooperative, and competitive. Students work closely in small groups with their professor on projects that develop in size and complexity through the six semesters of design studio. The senior year culminates with a thesis project; students develop a body of research on a particular issue of the interior in the fall which they then develop as a design project in the spring.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many courses offered at Pratt that will enable them to fully develop their interests and talents. Studio electives may be chosen from any department in the Institute; an enormous menu of courses is available for the pursuit of individual interests. Interested students can apply to spend the spring term of the junior year at the Danish International School (DIS) studying interior architecture in Copenhagen. The program at DIS includes extensive study tours throughout Scandinavia.
