ID 151 Introduction to Interior Design (3 cr)
Introduction to interior design theory and process. Explores transdisciplinary design issues and relationships; emphasis areas include basic design theories, vocabulary, and sustainability of the built environment. Attendance at outside events (such as lectures and symposiums) is required.
ID 152 Interior Design I (2 cr)
Study of the relationship of design theories to the interior environment; exploration, through a variety of media, of the elements and principles of design, with emphasis on spatial relationships and color theory. Focus of design problems is residential design and small-scale contract design. Attendance at outside events; some class critique sessions outside of scheduled hours at student expense.

Prereq or Coreq: ID 351 or Permission
ID 351 Interior Design III (5 cr)
Sequence of advanced residential and small scale contract design projects requiring integration of design theories and process in relationship to critical problem solving. Emphasis on formation of interior spaces to correspond to function and flow patterns. Nine hours of studio a week; field trips reqd at student expense; some class jury sessions outside of scheduled hours.
ID 352 Interior Design IV (5 cr)
Sequence of large scale contact and other design problems requiring application of expanded design process including problem identification, analysis, program development, conceptual and design development and solution presentation. Implementation of lighting, codes, systems furniture, and interior specifications in the design process. Nine hours of studio a week; field trips required at student expense; some class jury sessions outside of scheduled hours.
Prereq: ID 351
ID 368 Materials and Specifications (3 cr)

ID 443 Universal Design (3 cr)
May be used as core credit in J-3-d. Introduction to and application of universal design and accessible design concepts, principles, products, standards, laws, regulations, and guidelines to the design and adaptation of the built environment. Attendance at outside events (such as lectures, simulations, and completion of a service learning component) is required. One and a half hours lecture and 3 hours arranged. Recommended Preparation: ID 254 or Arch 254.
ID 451 Interior Design V (5 cr)
Advanced problems in mixed use contract interior design requiring synthesis of related course work into comprehensive design resolution that communicates design impact on sense of place and place making; projects will seek to refine the design decision making process by requiring in-depth programming, client participation, and development beyond schematic phases, e.g., integration of building systems, lighting design, interdisciplinary investigation, and understanding of cultural/environmental context. Nine hrs of studio a wk and assigned work; field trips reqd at student expense; some class jury sessions will meet outside of scheduled hours. Recommended Preparation: VTD 244.
Prereq: ID 352
ID 452 Interior Design VI (5 cr)
