In the tradition of St. Catherine University we educate our students to become leaders in the Interior Design Profession; to influence the practice of Interior Design to improve the quality of life for users of the designed environment.

Employment opportunities range from freelance interior design to design work for multi-discipline firms (interior design, architecture and engineering).

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, interior design employment is expected to grow 19 percent by 2018 — faster than any other profession.
