BS Four-Year Degree Plan: Interior Design (comprehensive)

The four-year degree plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for a student to graduate in four years. The four-year degree option can be completed in eight regular semesters (with one summer internship). Students in FID are encouraged to complete their programs within four years. The four-year degree plan assumes the following:

  • No remedial coursework is required.
  • The student does not fail any classes.
  • The student does not change minors.
  • The student is willing to take an internship during one summer.

Internship

All Interior Design majors are required to complete a minimum of four credit hours’ worth of internship experience to satisfy their major degree requirements.

Interior Design students must complete HID 201: Studio I, HID 241: Residential Design I, and HID 325: Pre-Internship Seminar prior to being eligible to register. This is a three course sequence, you must complete Pre-Internship prior to completing internship. Review the course descriptions for all courses.

All students are highly encouraged to gain practical work experience prior to completing an internship for credit, as this builds upon the knowledge acquired within the classroom.
