Seminole State College’s Interior Design program reflects current client needs and trends, such as sustainable design practices, ergonomics, universal design and aging in place. All full-time interior design faculty are Florida-licensed professionals who are actively involved in the industry. The program is nationally recognized, and students have consistently won national and regional industry awards. Students can participate in community projects, visit major construction sites and design centers, and join the student chapters of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Once students complete the degree and four years of work experience under a licensed interior designer or architect, they will be eligible to take the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam for state licensure.
Interior Designers are qualified by education, experience and professional licensure to enhance an environment’s function and overall appeal, as well as establishing the core value of protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public. The professional interior designer is integral in the planning, design and construction of today’s complex built environments and collaborates with architects, engineers, general contractors and other professionals.
Employment of interior designers is projected to grow 20 percent from 2012 to 2022 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics).
