Student learning outcomes: Interior Design (BS)
Shown here are the general learning goals of the program broken down into specific student learning outcomes (SLOs). These SLOs represent what a student should be able to do as a result of successfully completing this program. Student performance on these outcomes are routinely assessed by program faculty as a way of informing programmatic improvement efforts.
Interior designers apply historical and cultural knowledge of interiors, architecture, art, and the decorative arts; apply theories of two- and three-dimensional design, and spatial definition; and apply the principles and theories of color and light within the context of determining design solutions.
Interior designers select and specify appropriate furniture, fixtures, equipment and finish materials; apply principles of lighting, acoustics, thermal comfort, and indoor air quality; demonstrate knowledge of interior construction and building systems; and apply laws, codes, standards, and guidelines that impact the design of interior spaces.
Interior designers will weigh design decisions with consideration of their ecological, socio-economic, cultural, and human behavioral contexts, as well as of their global implications.
Interior designers will work both independently and collaboratively to identify and define relevant aspects of a design problem, gather and synthesize appropriate information and research findings (i.e., evidence-based), generate alternative responses to programmatic requirements, and demonstrate creative thinking and originality in solutions.
