    It's true that many of the design professions can be practiced without a degree, and there are cases where degrees may not necessary. In these cases, designers can get by with formal training in their chosen profession from craft schools or designer associations. Interior design is one example of a profession for which formal education is difficult if not impossible to get without graduating from an accredited professional school. So yes, it really depends on what you plan to do as well as the level at which you want to practice your passion. Ultimately though, getting some sort of formal education will help you advance faster towards success in any field while preparing you for many different possible careers down the road.

    There are two main paths that fall under the umbrella of becoming an interior designer: design and architecture. In order to choose which path you would like to pursue, reach out to your closest community college with a program in Interior Design. Take exploratory classes in both areas and see which one speaks more to your interests. One should not rule out the possibility of taking courses at a junior college or university after they have already completed their high school studies in order for them to receive credits towards technical disciplines such as Architecture or Interior Design.

    There are different types of designers that focus on a type of interior design, such as craftsmen and collaborative architects. Typically, they start out studying interior design before being accepted to one of their professional schools. The first challenge for students is to find the best school in their region to study at. Designer can specialize in many areas including but not limited to kitchen design, bathroom design or space planning. They usually have degrees from either art school or an architecture program. Some guilds require professionals that wish to be members must have internships while others don't offer these opportunities yet still allow them as members if they create a decent portfolio which includes work such as drawings and calculations.
