Certificate in Residential Interior Design
Fairfield University’s Certificate in Residential Interior Design is designed for graduate students who are interested in specializing in residential interiors and in developing an impressive residential design portfolio for successful entry into the field.
With a faculty of dedicated professionals, students have the opportunity to experience first-hand the work that residential interior designers do. With the development of sketches, drawings to scale and formal presentations students learn to communicate effectively their creative ideas. Both the client and the trades who execute the work must fully understand all details for the completion of a successful project.
Creative problem solving becomes an integral part of the process with individual guidance and support from the instructor as students deal with real life design issues. Classes that are offered both day and evening are flexible to accommodate a busy lifestyle.
The Certificate can be earned as part of the requirements for the MA program or on its own. Students may also continue to complete the Certificate in Professional Interior Design or transition into the MA program at any point. Students enrolled in any of the interior design graduate programs may join ASID as student members.
