  • Objectives
    The Bachelor of Applied Arts - Interior Design program provides four years of full-time study to students wishing to pursue a professional career related to the design of the built environment. The curriculum integrates professional and general studies content with an emphasis on critical thinking and applied research, and is enriched with an additional focus on international perspectives in interior design. The program contains a strong experiential component that includes simulated studio experiences, community-based design initiatives, and a 14-week co-op work term. In their fourth year of study students are given the opportunity to specialize in an area of interest specific to the profession and are required to complete an applied research paper. This integration of theory, analysis, and practice prepares graduates to assume leadership roles within the profession. Graduates of the BAA - Interior Design will be able to apply strategic thinking and a research orientation to their responsibilities as professional interior designers, and will contribute to the development and evolution of the field of design. This program meets the eligibility requirements for CIDA accreditation at the first professional degree level. The program also qualifies graduates to meet industry standards as established by official interior design professional bodies (IDC, ARIDO, NCIDQ, ASID). This program is part of the Mobile Computing (laptop) Initiative at Algonquin College, which will better prepare students for an increasingly technology-oriented workplace. The curriculum has been designed to take advantage of student-centred learning and the possibilities afforded by working in a technology-enhanced environment. Students in programs that are part of the Mobile Computing initiative will be expected to own a laptop that meets College specifications.
