Return to: Academic Programs

Academic Program Code:  122

The Interior Decorating and Design program prepares students for professions related to the visual and functional improvement of interior spaces. Interior designers plan and design room arrangements for home and office settings. They advise clients on design factors such as space planning, layout of furnishings and equipment, and color coordination of fabrics and finishes. Designers may work from their homes as subcontractors or for businesses that design spaces and/or sell materials and furnishings for the home and office.

In GRCC’s Interior Decorating and Design program, students study coordination of color schemes, furniture styles and construction, window treatments, floor coverings, fabrics, and accessories. They analyze the client/professional relationship, space planning, and costs. Students also actively participate in formulating ideas, solving problems, giving presentations, and working as a team.

Note: This program is designed for career entry and/or advancement in selected fields. It is not intended to be a transfer program. Students planning to transfer should see a counselor or faculty advisor concerning transfer options.
