Your Professional Success is Important to Us
Our BFA program in Interior Design will prepare you for a range of employment options with the interior design profession, including commercial, residential, institutional, retail, and hospitality design. The first step in that preparation begins in the classroom, where what you learn will be relevant to your design practice because you'll be mentored by faculty who are industry professionals. We offer courses in best business practices and portfolio development, and our curriculum includes a required internship, enabling you to gain experience in the field before graduating.
As a member of Suffolk's design community, you'll have access to numerous professional opportunities. Beyond the studio walls, you'll benefit from the long-standing relationships we've cultivated with employers who've hired our interns and graduates and are familiar with the caliber of the education and skills our students receive. We also have an extensive network of alumni who hail from around the globe, and who are employed by leading architecture, interior design, and lighting design firms.
Suffolk is not only where you'll build the foundation for the professional network that you'll have throughout your career, but it's where you'll gain a professional edge. Our programs are assessed regularly by practitioners from leading national firms, who have direct experience in hiring and evaluating the performance of recent graduates. This national recognition not only reinforces our graduates' excellent training, but it means your Suffolk degree carries more weight in the national design community.
