    “The COD Interior Design program offers in-depth curriculum of both the technical skills and business aspects of interior design. It introduced me to active professionals, one of whom became my mentor. You will learn real-world technical and business skills through COD’s Interior Design program. You will be challenged, so focus on one project at a time and immerse yourself into every project with well-thought out and researched solutions. Your work here is your portfolio that will be presented to future employers.”
