Faculty of Communication & Design

The School of Interior Design prepares graduates for leadership in their profession through understanding and consideration of the technological, aesthetic, ideological, environmental, cultural and social dimensions of the built environment.

The four-year program in the School of Interior Design not only reflects an integration of theory and practice but also addresses concerns with ecological sustainability, global relevance, economic exigencies and emerging technologies.  Most recently, the School has been identified as one of the top three programs in interior design in North America.

An immersive environment introduces students to the terminology, marketplace, and professional issues of practice, while an experiential curriculum emphasizes both studio and workshop learning. Particular emphasis is placed on creativity, passion, diversity, collaboration, excellence and vision.


Zone Learning / Research

The School also encourages research and special projects that address issues of ecological sustainability, global relevance, and emerging technologies.

In 2013, the School established the Design Fabrication Zone – a multidisciplinary experiential learning lab where students and faculty can develop projects that explore design/fabrication innovation and entrepreneurship in built environments.

Graduates work with design firms that focus on residential, commercial and community design projects as well as being involved in exhibition design, marketing, facility management, set design and television.  Among the School’s notable alumni are Yabu Pushelberg (George Yabu /Glenn Pushelberg), Brian Gluckstein, Candice Olsen(W Network), and Dylan Kwok (Helsinki School of Art and Design).
