All students earning their undergraduate degree in a Design discipline from the OSU College of Business complete a common design core. This core, consisting of about 100 credits across all four years, provides students with a strong design foundation.

Interior design graduates will be professionally competent to:

  • Identify, define and describe relevant aspects of a design problem (goals, objectives).
  • Solve progressively complex design problems.
  • Apply the design process, including pre-design, schematic design and design development.
  • Explore and iterate multiple ideas.
  • Design original and creative solutions.
  • Express ideas effectively through the use of drawings, design software and presentations.
  • Demonstrate the ability to select and specify furniture, fixtures, equipment and finish materials in interior spaces.
