New York, NY
Founded in 1916, the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) is New York’s only private, not-for-profit college devoted to the design of the interior environment. It is dedicated to the advancement of the discipline of interior design through education, research, professional development, public programs, and community outreach. Critical to its mission is the engagement with New York City’s cultural institutions, access to design resources, and its immersion in the city’s economy.
NYSID’s guiding principle is that the successful design of an interior space improves human welfare, and that the interior design profession assumes an important role in ensuring that these spaces are beautiful, functional, healthy, safe, and built in a socially and environmentally conscientious way.
This ideal is put into practice by a dedicated faculty of highly qualified interior designers, architects, art historians, and authorities in the field who guide a diverse student body of more than 700 full- and part-time students. NYSID provides a certificate as well as undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The college is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), and is a Candidate for Accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The BFA program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), and the first-professional MFA is a candidate for CIDA accreditation.
We invite to you visit NYSID's Main Campus and Graduate Center (LEED Platinum Certified) during our Open House. Please contact NYSID for the exact dates.
