Interior Design Department

The Interior Design program at Ohlone College offers an in-depth introduction to the field of Interior Design. The program is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the skills necessary to enter the field, and to prepare students for responsible entry-level positions within the design profession. For practicing professionals, the program offers an opportunity for enhancing design skills and knowledge, or for redirecting existing skills towards new career goals.

The curriculum integrates Interior Design with Fine and Decorative Art and Architecture. The courses emphasize design as problem solving, and are structured to teach both theoretical and practical applications of design.

Students may earn a Certificate of Achievement in Interior Design, or may complete general education courses and electives to earn the Associates in Arts degree. Selected credits in the curriculum transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The department also offers Certificates of Accomplishment in the Basics of Interior Design, Interior Design Technology, and Interior Design Communications.
