Interior design program recognized as one of the best by Architectural Digest
The interior design program in the College of Health and Human Sciences has been named a top program by ADPRO, Architectural Digest's members-only community for design industry professionals.
K-State made the list along with other notable design schools, including the Rhode Island School of Design; The New School, Parsons School of Design; University of Cincinnati; Cornell University; and the New York School of Interior Design.
This is the second recognition for the program this academic year. This fall, DesignIntelligence, an independent company focused on the design and construction industry, ranked K-State's program eighth among the most admired interior design schools in the nation.
"We are pleased to be recognized as a top program in interior design," said Barbara Anderson, professor and department head. "Recognition like this is rewarding for our students, alumni and faculty who are committed to improving human lives through design."
K-State's program is the only interior design program in the state of Kansas for students who want to earn a four-year baccalaureate degree from a program accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation. The ADPRO ranking highlights the program's areas of strength in evidence-based design and focusing on the impact of interior environments on human well-being as hallmarks for career preparedness.
