The UNT Interior Design program has been continuously accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA, formerly FIDER) since 1977. CIDA provides the foundation for excellence in the interior design profession by setting standards for education and accrediting academic programs that meet those standards.

The curriculum prepares the student for challenges as a design professional by balancing creative and technical expertise. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex provides an excellent network of design practitioners and resources for mentors and internships.

Our graduates pursue many design specialties including:

Some individuals go on to own their own business or develop a specialty (lighting design, for example) or attend graduate school.
