Interior Design

To prepare the students for entrance into professional practice, the Interior Design BFA curriculum at CSU, Chico emphasizes both the theoretical and the practical, from concept to articulation. Our goal is to provide students with a design education that is well rounded and applicable to the next generation of interior design professionals. Courses encompass design theory, design history, human behavior, critical thinking, problem solving, building technologies, codes and life safety, communications skills, and professional values.

Beginning fall 2009 the BA Option in Interior Design will be phased out in favor of the BFA Option in Interior Design. New students entering fall 2009 or later will follow the BFA option pattern, while students that began the program prior to fall 2009 will be given the choice of completing the BA option, or switching to the BFA option.

The Interior Design Program now requires all students entering the program to own a laptop computer. Click HERE for more information on the laptop purchase program.
