You’ll collaborate with leading practitioners in New York City, the design capital of the world. In classes taught by industry professionals, you’ll learn drafting techniques, computer modeling, lighting, and materials and methods, with an emphasis on sustainability and user health and safety.

  • FIT’s Interior Design programs are accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA).
  • Courses meet National Certification for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) Exam and New York State certification (Certified Interior Designer) eligibility requirements.
  • With about 400 students, FIT’s Interior Design program is the largest of its kind in New York City.

School of Architecture and Interior Design

The School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) at the University of Cincinnati prepares students for critical practice. Our students engage with the principles, traditions, and requirements of building in all its aspects, interior and exterior. Our goal is to advance the professions of Architecture and Interior Design by combining ethical judgment, creative research and technical proficiency in pursuit of excellence. We seek to nurture a life-long world view that recognizes the designer’s responsibility to the environment, society, and the profession. Students are encouraged to take risks with their design ideas, and develop the skills to communicate them. The faculty and students of SAID strive to advance the discourse of environmental design, to respond effectively to change, and to integrate research with technical expertise.

As part of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, the Interior Design program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Arts and Design (NASAD).
