Interior design is an ideal academic home for energetic and inquisitive students seeking a meaningful, varied and creative profession. For each new problem encountered, interior designers use a variety of methods to investigate and analyze user needs and alternatives for satisfying them. Armed with this insight, they enhance interior spaces to maximize occupant quality of life, increase productivity, and protect public health, safety and welfare.

The interior designer's ultimate goal is to transform generic, impersonal rooms and areas into unique, expressive spaces that provide the greatest possible "fit" with the values, personalities, roles and potential of their occupants.

The Department of Interior Design was established in 2012. Previously, the Interior Design Program was in the Department of Art and Design.
