NEW STUDENT INFORMATION
CLASS FORMATS: During the Fall & Spring semesters, classes meet only once per week for the hours listed in the class schedule; this "block scheduling" works best for Interior Design project-type classes;
PROGRAM FORMAT: Beginning and Intermediate level classes focus on specific "skills" or "information"; the classes culminate in the four advanced "studio" classes where all skills and information are utilized in comprehensive projects in one of four specialization areas: Residential, Universal (special needs), Office, Contract. The Residential Studio should be taken first, as the space planning skills developed in this class will be necessary for the other studio classes.
