Mercyhurst University

Interior Architecture and Design Bachelor of Science

If creating uniquely inspiring and purposeful spaces where people can live, work and play is your passion, the interior architecture and design program at Mercyhurst University is your answer. A professional interior designer strives to create hospitality environments where we can experience relaxation and enjoyment, educational environments where we can learn and grow, healthcare environments where we can heal, and work environments in which we can be safe and productive. It’s about blending form and function – beauty and purpose. Are you up to the challenge? All students are supervised through an internship/cooperative education experience to build up their portfolio in a real-world professional setting. Students receive hands-on experiences working on community building and design projects and are networked with professionals from the design world.
