Are you creative and artistic? Do you always have new ideas about how to improve your surroundings? Do you enjoy working with others to solve problems and overcome challenges? Then consider a career in interior design. El Centro’s Interior Design program, offered at El Centro College, can give you the skills you’ll need to succeed in this field.
What exactly is interior design? Simply put, it’s the trade of planning the layout and furnishings of an architectural interior. More than just decorators, designers draw from a number of disciplines — including architecture, product design and environmental psychology — to plan both the functionality and look of almost every type of building. Designers need to understand interior construction, equipment, materials, furniture and building codes and may concentrate on residential or commercial design.
El Centro’s location in downtown Dallas puts students at the edge of a booming design district with incredible opportunities for hands-on learning, student internships and immediate employment after graduation.
Your training in interior design will prepare you to work as a design assistant with the potential to realize full professional status and independent practice. Licensure as an interior designer with the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners requires a combination of both education and practical experience and passing the National Council for Interior Design Qualifying Exam.
