The School of Architecture offers professionally accredited and post-professional degree programs in Interior Design, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Community and Regional Planning, in addition to post-professional and research degree programs in Architectural History, Historic Preservation, Sustainable Design, and Urban Design. The Interior Design Program offers CIDA-accredited professional degrees at both undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as a graduate research-oriented post-professional degree. 

The Interior Design Program seeks candidates whose work and experience offer inspiring, and innovative perspectives on relevant discipline-specific issues through research, scholarship, critical practice, and pedagogy. The successful candidate will contribute to the school’s vibrant studio culture, teach required and elective courses in their area of expertise, and engage with interdisciplinary opportunities available at the school, the university, the city, and beyond.

Candidates are expected to hold, at a minimum, a terminal professional or academic degree in interior design or an allied field such as architecture or interior architecture. Preference will be given to candidates with at least one interior design degree. NCIDQ certification is required within three years of the start of the appointment. The successful candidate will articulate their future research and scholarly trajectory and their plans for contributing to the advancement of the field.

The Interior Design Program acknowledges that design is a multi-faceted endeavor with tangible consequences for society and the planet, and that its research and teaching must evolve along with the diverse constituencies that it serves.
