Qualification Awarded BA in Interior Design
Level Of Qualification Bachelor (1st Cycle Degree)
Offered by Department of Fine and Applied Arts
Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time

The Program is shifted towards an Architectural orientation and it is also enriched with a broad Fine Art context. This allows a good balance of input between Architecture, Interior Design and Art. The BA Interior Design program is designed to prepare future professionals in the Interior Design field who will be functioning in the ever-changing world of the new century. Students acquire sufficient knowledge, techniques and understanding of design, which enables them to use it as a foundation both for employment and academic understanding. This program has been designed as the distinctive design of objects and space appropriate to their physical and social contexts. The program occupies a territory which will overlap other related fields: the precised ergonomic and hand-contact focus of furniture and product design; the transient and heightened atmospheric world of theatre design; the strategic thinking and client centred perspectives of trend forecasters, graphic designers and management consultancy; the conceptual strengths of contemporary performance and sculpture and the timeless universal qualities of architecture. The program also introduces and orientates students towards new technologies which not only reflect changes in innovative teaching and learning practices but also the international industrial market place.

The program aims:
- to educate and produce graduates who will become professional practitioners with informed basic technical proficiency and firmly established critical perspectives.
- to integrate theory and practice at every level with a view to satisfying the steadily expanding demands for the improvement of the interior of the built environment.
- to provide right dimensions of cultural issues which arise from the design technologies in the context of social functions, the purposes they may serve and the behaviour of the personnel using them.

The language of instruction is English.
1. Apply knowledge in art and design with a capacity for analysis and synthesis in the visual language in relation to space.
2. Demonstrate awareness of the spatial process utilising the capacity for organization and planning.
3. Demonstrate awareness on the forefront of knowledge in the field of interior design and on the emerging spatial and material technologies.
4. Use of visual, oral and written communication in native language.
5. Communicate with experts in other fields both within as well as the Art and Design field.
6. Demonstrate appreciation of diversity and multiculturalism both in cultural matters as well as in the Art and Design practise
7. Demonstrate ability to work in an international context in the Art and Design process.
8. Demonstrate competency in oral and written communication skills, as well as in the use of relevant art and design problem solving and decision making processes.
The graduates of the Program have the knowledge and skills required for the design, implementation, and administration of spatial processes. They fulfil the requirements for employment in the public or private sectors as interior designers, architectural drawers, and furniture/product designers.
The graduates of the Program can also be employed as educators in public or private secondary schools.
