Mission of Interior Design: To provide a strong, quality undergraduate experience and interior design education, preparing the individual to protect the health, safety, and welfare of families and communities in the design, remodeling, and re-purposing of the built environment while embracing academic excellence and professional and Christian integrity.
Working in commercial and residential areas with specialties in commercial environments, hospitality, healthcare, aging in place, and residential kitchen and bath, Interior Designers create order and beauty in the built environment with the ever-present goal to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. At Carson-Newman, Interior Design students capture their creative and artistic visions in pragmatic design solutions with the ability to visually convey the concept to a client. Our students are instilled with the vision that well designed spaces can positively shape people and are equipped with the life skills necessary to become disciplined, skilled business people who succeed in family and professional life. Graduates of the Carson-Newman Interior Design program are employed by commercial designers, architects, and business owners in commercial and residential design.
