    It's important to get an interior design degree if you're interested in becoming a talented and knowledgeable designer. The education requirements for someone who wants to become an Interior Designer (ID) or Design Associate are usually at least a bachelor's degree, which is often all that is required, but some firms insist on a Master of Fine Arts (MFA). Obtaining an ID or Design Associate degree will give you the skills to understand all aspects of good design. It will teach you about colors, textures, spatial planning and the psychology behind what appeals to people when they look at their surroundings. You must also learn how "a firm with expertise across varied disciplines can create architectural built work that integrates beautifully within its location."

    It varies, but there is often a broad component of learning how to design for different spaces that manifests in general guidelines. Sometimes there are some provisions for art and media as well, depending on the curriculum. In any school program you'll likely have one humanities course and one course dealing with science or math-related subjects, in addition to courses specifically in those disciplines (statistics if your major is statistics). And most schools require a writing seminar or equivalent class. Some people don't really know what they want out of college until they get to their junior or senior year-and if this proves true for you, it doesn't hurt to spend your first couple years exploring before committing yourself.

    The design industry is a lucrative and fulfilling one, with many job opportunities. The path towards becoming an interior designer will require formal training at a college or specialized trade school as well as on-the-job experience. It's important to carefully research what type of degree program fits best for your needs. There are four main types of degrees you can study to become an interior designer - Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design, University Certificate in Interior Design, Associate’s Degree in Interior Design, and postgraduate Diploma or Masters Degree in Interior Design. Bachelor's Degrees teach courses such as industrial design principles, color theory or branding fundamentals depending on the interests of the student.

    It is a nice idea to look into and see if you like the subject matter as much as the thought of it. Though this might not be your route, there are many ways to become an interior designer without having an expensive degree - YouTube tutorials, classes from various companies (always with varying qualities), App apprenticeships, etc. For any DIY-ers out there, there are many resources for books and blogs on how to create spaces that're in line with what you need and/or want.

    It is the fastest growing profession with employers expecting the market to grow at a rate of 26% over the next eight years, due to surging rates of remodels and home construction, and booming demand for sustainable design. This degree will not only teach you about life-style trends and furniture styles, but also how to spruce up your current personal space in order to make it feel more like home. You'll learn skills in color selections, spacing furnishings appropriately and even designing a room around a specific theme. Today nobody wants their friends visiting their apartment or house that looks like they don't care about furnishing it properly so expect hours upon hours of homework that will surely be efficient towards earning that decent paycheck.

    A degree in interior design exposes students to the entire spectrum of construction, including technical courses and practical experience in construction. This can be beneficial if the student plans to become a licensed contractor for residential or commercial remodeling or building. They may also choose an area of specialization and focus on furnishing large international architectural firms with interior items.
