Interior Design involves the understanding of a created environment and its relationship to people. In short, it’s the creation of space in which people work, live and play. The goal of the program is to encourage the student to conceptualize and create successful design solutions for a wide range of clients and design problems.

The Interior Design program, which includes courses offered at RVCC’s instructional site in Bridgewater (RVCC@Bridgewater), covers both the residential and commercial facets of interior design. Graduates will be able to draft floor plans and select color schemes, fabrics, wall/floor treatments and lighting modes. Students can also continue with advanced coursework toward a bachelor’s degree.

  • function as members of the interior design community
