ACADEMICS / DESIGN
The physical spaces we occupy were likely once put down on paper by Interior Designers. The Interior Design curriculum at Paier College aims to prepare students not only for practical application, but also to pass requisite professional licensing exams. To do so, the relationship between interior design and architecture is strongly emphasized. Basic structural principles & construction methods are introduced. Studio courses incorporate programming, conceptual design & development, and presentation skills. Guest juries of architects & design professionals regularly critique student presentations. Special consideration is given to new “green” and “sustainable” codes & regulations. Instructors include licensed architects, interior designers and specialists in relevant fields. Our program prepares students for employment in residential, hospitality, contract & commercial, transportation, and retail & health care, where job opportunities are numerous.
Beyond core curriculum and elective coursework, students are exposed to classes in ID Drawing, ID Drafting, Furniture Design, Textiles, CAD, Construction, Architecture, and more.
