The Interior Decorating Certificate program is designed for students interested in the field of interior design but not in the technical aspects of construction and structure. Students pursuing this certificate will develop good decorating skills but are not required to study technical drafting techniques or develop a professional portfolio. However, students will need some basic knowledge of drafting, use of the scale rule, etc. since decorators must be able to do an accurate floor plan. Therefore, basic drafting equipment is required. It is highly recommended that students take Drawing & Presentation for non-credit prior to Interior Design I and Color. Courses are offered for non-credit only and can be taken in any sequence. Students are encouraged to sign up for the guided tour of the D&D building in New York City.

Upon satisfactory completion of the six required courses, students receive a certificate of completion. Students enrolled in this program are not eligible for the Residential or Professional Certificates or ASID student membership.

For those desiring to learn the more technical aspects of construction and structure and to be fully qualified in the field of Interior Design, please visit www.fairfield.edu/interiordesign to see our selection of credit courses for Residential and Professional Certification in the field.
