VCUarts Qatar's four-year BFA Interior Design program finds impetus in a combination of creativity and environmental behaviour paradigms underscoring holistic design approaches.

The curriculum, which is fully accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), promotes diversity, innovation, sustainability and collaboration.

Interior designers create functional and appealing spaces where people can live, work and play.

They study the theoretical principles of environment and behavioural sciences, such as space and form, colour and light, sustainability, communication, codes and regulations, as well as business practices.

They learn how art, architecture, design and technology inform interior design and learn how to collaborate effectively across disciplines.

They develop design solutions that address the health, safety and welfare of the users of a space.

Interior designers are skilful and knowledgeable of construction and building systems because they make decisions that impact structural components as well as mechanical and electrical systems.

They also have knowledge of environmental psychology, building codes and regulations, technical properties of materials, historic precedents and the business of design.

Our interior design majors are given opportunities to develop leadership abilities, as well as entrepreneurial, communication and organizational skills before they graduate, and our support systems continue for them as alumni.
