About this program

Interior Design

The study of Interior Design focuses on developing each design student's creativity by intersecting it with visual, technical, and architectural design principles. Mastery of these principles will enhance an Interior Design student's understanding of space, creativity, and art, while encouraging each person's own imagination allowing design students to correctly channel and focus ideas, avoid clich and collect new stimuli.

The Interior Design bachelor's degree curriculum through Marist's four-year study abroad degree program has been designed with an innovative foundation in both classic interior design and architectural rendering that will allow undergraduate students to become practitioners in the field. The faculty of the Florence, Italy Interior Design program believes that the study of contemporary culture and social principles are crucial for the modern designer.
