Design Institute of San Diego is small for a school but big for an interior design degree program. As specialists in interior design education for over 30 years, we understand our subject in great depth. Our curriculum is not a narrow focus, but a wide exploration and consistently remains at the forefront of interior design education because our dedicated faculty members incite passion while encouraging the next wave of design innovators.
Our interior design degree curriculum is structured like a network of interrelated parts that build upon each other.
We put a lot of thought into every aspect of your interior design education – the order in which you take courses – which courses interact with each other – how you get exactly what you need when you need it.
Your major has been pre-selected before enrollment so that you begin your interior design courses immediately – no time wasted.
The goal of professional practice remains at the center as you study interior design from multiple points of view across a wide range of professional options; gathering experience, knowledge, skill, and confidence. Studying interior design through inter-disciplinary and cross – cultural consultation with a large faculty helps you to make informed choices for your future.
Our students benefit greatly from a well-rounded general education in subjects including Critical Thinking, Philosophy, World Literature, Environmental Studies, Cultural Anthropology, Developmental Psychology and World Politics. They develop keen insight into the challenges and opportunities facing the world, and increase their ability to think and act globally as interior designers. When you graduate you are truly ready to meet the world.
