Interior Design & Merchandising
       Bachelor of Science in Interior Design

Our program focuses on solving real-world design challenges. Our classes have supported urban revitalization and rural economic development in communities in eastern North Carolina. Our students recently designed: A European-style, open-air marketplace inspired by a study abroad experience in Italy, Barracks for Wounded Warriors, renovations to popular bistros and restaurants, shops, eateries and galleries, and a heritage center for the Eastern NC Woodland Indians. Our alumni have gone on to work in industries designing residential, retail, and commercial settings.
