Interior Architecture



As an interior architecture student at UW-Stevens Point, you will engage in an exciting, yet extensive, professional training, designing an array of interior spaces ranging from residential homes to corporate office to multiuse spaces such as a senior living facility. In addition, this four-year curriculum is carefully formulated to teach you design history, design communication and drawing, socio-cultural aspects of design, technology and sustainable design. Your design projects will be regularly displayed in a dedicated gallery or the corridors within the College of Professional Studies Building.

Progress toward your degree is monitored through a professional sequence portfolio review. The senior portfolio, which is completed just before graduation, prepares you to present your best work to prospective employers, faculty, students, family and friends.

The UW-Stevens Point interior architecture program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
