The Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) degree program at Algonquin College prepares you to pursue a professional career related to the design of the built environment. 

The curriculum integrates professional and general studies with an emphasis on critical thinking and applied research.

Enriched with a focus on environmental and global perspectives in interior design, you learn to consider ecological, economic and social aspects to analyze and design healthy living and working environments. 

Projects increase in scale and complexity from residential scale to medium and large scale projects from commercial sectors such as retail, workplace, hospitality and healthcare.

The program contains a strong experiential component that includes design studio experiences and an active engagement with the professional design community. 

In the fourth year, you have the opportunity to specialize in an area of interest specific to the profession and are required to complete an applied research paper.

To complete your degree, you must complete one mandatory paid co-op work term where you gain valuable work experience and network within the industry.

You also earn a Building Biology Advocate (BBA) Certification upon successful completion of the seven required Construction courses.

The integration of theory, analysis and practice prepares you to assume a leadership role within the profession. 

As a graduate, you are able to apply strategic thinking and research orientation to your responsibilities as a professional interior designer and can contribute to the development and evolution of the field of design.
