Interior Design

Design in three dimensions.

Interior design is about more than making four walls and a floor look beautiful. Design has the power to impact our health, education, productivity and overall quality of life.

CCS’s Interior Design program helps you develop a holistic approach to creating environments that function and respond effectively to the way people live their lives — at home, at work and as part of communities.

Accredited by the Council of Interior Design (CIDA), the Interior Design program is an intimate experience that emphasizes how to develop concepts and master creative thinking. You’ll work collaboratively, learning how to strengthen your aesthetic point of view while paying close attention to client needs and experiences. You’ll also develop the skills to integrate research and current trends with environment function, design and sustainability.
