Cultivating order and beauty, interior designers create and transform commercial and residential spaces into works of art. At Carson-Newman, we believe that well-designed spaces can positively shape people’s lives.
A small Interior Design program that provides large dividends to our students by equipping them with life and professional skills to graduate with confidence that they can design special spaces that will protect the health, safety, and welfare of all stakeholders.
We accomplish this through incorporating real-life projects and clients into our curriculum, attending professional Interior Design meetings where our students network with designers in the field, and participating in professional conferences. In all these learning events, we strive to delve deep into sustainability design through the study of materials and finishes, alternate power sources, life-cycle costing, and learning to combine the beauty of art with the utility of the space.
