Interior Design

The Interior Design Program at Georgia Southern University provides a student-centered professional undergraduate education.

We have been CIDA Accredited since 2000 and focus on “evidence based design” which uses the best available research for design decisions. We also enjoy a brand new state of the art facility.

What is Interior Design?

According to the 2019 Council for Interior Design Qualification, Inc. “interior design encompasses the analysis, planning, design, documentation, and management of interior non-structural/non-seismic construction and alteration projects in compliance with applicable building design and construction, fire, life-safety, and energy codes, standards, regulations, and guidelines for the purpose of obtaining a building permit, as allowed by law. Qualified by means of education, experience, and examination, interior designers have a moral and ethical responsibility to protect consumers and occupants through the design of code-compliant, accessible, and inclusive interior environments that address well-being, while considering the complex physical, mental, and emotional needs of people” (https://www.cidq.org/definition-of-interior-design).
