Class Description


What you'll learn in this interior design course:

Whether you want to run your own business or to work for a design firm, this course will further you on your journey toward becoming an interior design professional. 

In this course, you will gain insight into all aspects of life as an interior designer. We will review in broad strokes what transpires from the moment a project commences until the finished work is photographed. Topics covered include setting clients' expectations, creating project budgets and schedules, communicating with trades, vendors and other professionals, and how to communicate your skills, experience, values, and vision to potential clients and employers. 

Each lecture will be complimented by a research assignment to deepen your understanding of the week’s topic. In addition to lectures, most weeks we’ll have a guest speaker. This person is an industry expert who will share their knowledge and experience in the industry. 

How do the LIVE VIA ZOOM online courses work?

Structure: Students interact live their instructor and fellow classmates during their scheduled sessions via zoom. Some courses include assignments for students to complete between sessions which may have due dates that require course participation during the week. In some courses, projects and visual presentations may be required.

Schedule: Please check the course description for exact course dates and times. Students must log into the zoom meeting to attend their scheduled session but do not need a zoom account. Instructors often record course meetings, if you know you are going to miss a session, please let your instructor know ahead of time.

Time commitment: The time that you spend working on your online course will vary based on the number of assignments.
