The Bachelor of Interior Architecture is an accredited, professional baccalaureate degree. The Master of Interior Design is a post-professional degree program, designed for students already holding a professional, accredited degree. Both degrees provide a studio-centered experience that encourages students to explore the the field of interior design in a manner that is practically grounded, critically framed, and deeply invested in cultural relevancy and technological advancement. In both programs, courses are designed to support each student’s intellectual needs through a highly flexible interdisciplinary platform, diverse faculty expertise, and individualized instruction.
The Bachelor of Interior Architecture is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CiDA) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), giving you an important advantage when entering the workforce. The Interior Architecture Student Organization (IASO) is active on campus and connects students with both of the major interior design professional organizations: the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
The Master of Interior Design 3+ track is intended for students who hold an undergraduate degree in a field other than interior architecture. This option specifically welcomes students who come to LTU with accomplishments and interests in other fields of inquiry with the expectation that such students will bring their interests and skills into the practice of interior architecture.
Regular admission to the Master of Interior Design program requires:
1. A completed Graduate Application, which can be submitted online at www.ltu.edu/apply
2. Official transcripts of all completed college work.
3. Evidence of a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.0.

6. A comprehensive portfolio demonstrating a range of visualization and design abilities and experience. Work should include creative, academic work and may include professional work with a clear statement on the responsibility of the applicant.
