Graduate Education in Interior Design: Opinions and Perceptions of Professional Leaders
Hegde, Asha; Hill, Caroline
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v103 n1 p28-33 2011
Twenty-two executives from the top 100 interior design (ID) firms in the United States completed a survey on the marketability of an advanced degree in ID and on the content areas of most interest to practitioners. Findings revealed that practitioners anticipate the demand for advanced ID degrees to increase considerably. Specialized knowledge relative to sustainability and lighting design were identified as critical areas for advanced study. Insights from the findings may inform faculties considering development of new and existing graduate programs to meet both academic expectations and current professional practice needs.
