Major: Interior Design at Northern Virginia Community College

The Associate of Applied Science in Interior Design is part of the Interior Design program at Northern Virginia Community College

This program prepares students to become assistant designers or interior design technicians. The curriculum provides a foundation education covering a broad range of topics in interior design, art history, furniture history, and basic design. Computer-aided drafting, rendering, and business practices round out the curriculum. Students become knowledgeable in both residential and contract design. Career opportunities exist not only in the retail marketing of furniture, fabrics, and accessories, but also in commercial design firms as space planners, drafters, and technical support staff. The curriculum can be completed in two years; however, students may enroll on a part-time basis. There are no entry requirements, but many IDS courses have prerequisites to insure that students are properly prepared for advanced coursework.
