Bachelor of Interior Architecture

The undergraduate Interior Architecture program at the BAC engages students in the dynamic process of design for human inhabitation. The curriculum focuses on the character and use of spaces rather than on solely aesthetic or structural approaches. The combination of academic courses and professional practice will prepare students to enter the market as full members of the design team, able to assess and shape spaces for workplace, residential, hospitality and commercial environments. Students are expected to understand the professional, economic and societal challenges and opportunities that impact the field of design.

Instructors are professionals in the field and bring current perspective on design practice to the classroom. The multiple design programs at the BAC make it possible for students to learn from practitioners in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Design Studies as well as Interior Architecture faculty, modeling the collaborative process that is necessary for any professional in today's demanding work environment and economic climate.

The BAC Interior Architecture program is guided by the mission of the BAC and 2011 Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) standards.
