The Interior Design program at Phoenicia University requires students to complete 147 credit hours for those beginning at the freshman level and 117 credit hours for those joining as sophomores. Of the total credit hours required, 75 credit hours must be completed in core Interior Design courses, with the remainder allocated to general education course (30 credits), art electives (9 credits) and one free elective course (3 credits).
The Interior Design program is committed to provide students with a rich and innovative curriculum, through improving students’ understanding of the theoretical, practical, and technical aspects of different design disciplines. Topics include: programming and space planning; furniture selection and layout; design and decorative elements; building and regulatory laws; building, environmental, and furniture systems; the environmental concerns of the profession; the concept of universal design; the computer applications related to interior design; the selection and application of lighting and color creativity, etc….; in addition to developing communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills.
We encourage students to create an intelligent, critically aware approach to innovative action in interior design, supported with the skills, knowledge, and proficiencies necessary for personal development.
We believe that the task of design is the creation of human environment, thus we focus on providing students with a comprehensive creative process to match between the art and the profession.
