Interior Design

About the Program

Building on Philadelphia University’s mission to prepare graduates for successful careers in an evolving global marketplace, the interior design program’s mission is to prepare students to be independent thinkers, innovative problem solvers, collaborators and leaders with high standards of professionalism, integrity, and excellence in design. With an emphasis on creativity, balanced with the knowledge and skills required for meaningful contributions to professional design practice, we instill in students an understanding of the global, cultural, social, aesthetic, technological, environmental and ethical responsibilities inherent to the design of interior environments.

The program is grounded in the belief that the interior designer mediates between human experience and the built environment and should enter the global marketplace as articulate, creative, inspired and socially aware design professionals. Our Bachelor of Science in Interior Design provides an extensive education to meet these demands. The curriculum encourages collaboration and integrates interdisciplinary experiences, broadening students’ knowledge of related fields. Our location in Philadelphia offers access to many design firms, providing opportunities for networking. Partnerships with community organizations and industry professionals give students a unique advantage with real clients and hands-on experience.

The program is fully accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), to learn more about Philadelphia University's accreditation, click here.
