INT101: INTERIOR DESIGN I
Introduction to aesthetic, cultural and functional considerations that shape the interior environment. Principles of design, space planning, color, textile, selection of furniture are explored as they relate to interior space. Studio sessions focus on residential spaces that introduce mechanical drawings skills, scaled floor plans and elevations. Presentations will emphasize the importance of verbal and graphic skills to communicate the design solution.(1 hr. lecture, 4 hrs. studio each week.) (Offered fall semester only.) No prerequisite.
INT102: INTERIOR TEXTILES AND FINISHES
A survey of the history, science, and proper application of textiles and finishes in the interior environment. Examination and evaluation of textile identification, proper selection, methods of weaving, testing, and maintenance of textiles. Demonstration through case studies of specifications, estimating of textiles and finishes, green design and textile codes. Culminates with the psychological and physical advantages of textiles in today's interiors. (Offered fall semester only.) Corequisite: INT101 or permission of instructor.
INT103: INTERIOR DESIGN II
Continuation of Interior Design l in which more complex design problems are approached and drawing skills are refined. Through studio sessions, a series of residential spaces are evaluated, client needs assessed, and trade sources explored so as to further develop the design process from an abstract concept to a designed solution. Floor plans and elevations are graphically supported by axonometric and isometric paraline drawings. An emphasis is placed on professional presentations and oral communication skills.(1 hr. lecture, 4 hrs. studio each week.) (Offered spring semester only.) Prerequisites: INT101, INT102, and INT115 or permission of instructor. Corequisites: INT105 and INT107 or permission of instructor.

INT201: INTERIOR DESIGN III
Residential projects of increasing levels of complexity and scope are used to enhance and expand design skills. Thumbnail sketching, rendering, one and two point perspective graphically support design solutions. An introduction to conceptual and practical methods of designing non-residential interior spaces (contract design work). Emphasis on interplay of programming, bubble schematics, flow charts, color, texture and lighting to emphasize the power of design in public spaces. Creative presentation techniques and refined oral skills are emphasized.(6 hrs. studio.) (Offered fall semester only.) Prerequisite: INT103 and INT107 or permission of instructor.
INT205: WORKING DRAWINGS
Foundation course in developing a complete set of interior construction drawings. One interior space of approximately 2,000 square feet is designed based on program and space analysis, building codes, and architectural and structural constraints. Two-dimensional working drawings such as floor, demolition, construction, furniture and lighting plans, and elevations are the graphic means for problem-solving. Three-dimensional drawings, axonometric and perspective, complete the design process.(6 hrs. studio each week.) (Offered fall semester only.) Prerequisite: INT103 or permission of instructor.
INT208: PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
Introductory course which examines practical, financial, legal and business considerations of the practicing interior designer.

Students required to participate in field trips that may exceed scheduled classroom hours. (Offered fall semester only.) Prerequisite: INT103 or permission of instructor.
INT220: MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
Synthesizing of product knowledge and finishes. Proper application and details stressed. Students develop a complete set of schedules for windows, doors, wall finishes, plumbing fixtures and lighting. Modelmaking, code requirements, barrier-free design, estimating and cost analysis are integrated into the series of drawings. (2 hrs. lecture, 4 hrs. studio per week.) (Offered spring semester only.) Prerequisite: INIT205 or permission of instructor.
INT226: KITCHEN AND BATH DESIGN
This course is an in-depth introduction to residential kitchen and bath design, with the aim of developing expertise for planning and creating functional, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing kitchens and baths.
