Interior Design Program

Marylhurst's BFA in Interior Design was the first program in the Portland metro area accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation.

Our comprehensive four-year degree offers an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to interior design education that will give you a solid foundation in design, graphic communication, art, architecture and the liberal arts.

Our curriculum and approach focus on:

  • Practice, supported by research and strong skill development
  • Creative explorations and solutions, tested by critical thinking
  • Collaborative learning and design process
  • Spaces that function, as well as provide meaningful experiences for users
  • Cross-disciplinary learning in psychology, history, ethics, sciences, philosophy and varied design arts
  • Global understanding and local application
  • Environmental, social and aesthetic responsibility
