The Certificate program in the Interior Design department is designed as a foundation year for all of the Interior Design programs. The Certificate focuses on the basics of residential design encompassing design theory, concept development, space planning, lighting, colour, history, materials & fabrics, sustainability, written communication skills, and visual communication through both freehand and computer generated drawings.
Upon completion of the Certificate in Interior Design Fundamentals, students wishing to proceed to the Diploma in Interior Design and Bachelor of Interior Design must complete TRPT 0011 - English, ENGL 1177 - Academic Writing, and 3.0 credits of General Education electives prior to admission into the Diploma program.
Students wishing to proceed to the Associate Certificate in Kitchen and Bath Design can do so directly after completion of the certificate, but must complete TRPT 0011 - English before continuing into the Diploma in Residential Interiors.
