The School of Planning, Design and Construction is pleased to announce that as of April 2018, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation has awarded accreditation for a term of six years to the MSU Interior Design Program’s Bachelor of Arts degree.
The Interior Design Program was initially accredited in August 1975. In order to be considered accredited, a program must comply or partially comply with all 16 of CIDA’s accreditation standards. CIDA accreditation standards broadly address the evolving components of graduate preparation for interior design practice, including:
- Program identity and context; and
- Knowledge acquisition, and application characterizing graduate preparation for interior design practice.
Program quality is assessed primarily through the evaluation of student learning outcomes evidenced in student work. To determine accreditation status, CIDA’s Accreditation Commission carefully considers information provided in the program self-study, and information obtained by the visiting team during the on-site review of the program, which occurred last spring.
The accreditation process also provides the program with valuable input for continued development and assists the program in adapting to meet evolving professional requirements as CIDA updates standards.
Award of CIDA accreditation provides assurance that students graduating from the Interior Design Program are adequately prepared for entry-level interior design practice.
Join us in congratulating the Interior Design Program for their achievement!
