BERKELEY COLLEGE OFFERS NEW BACHELOR’S DEGREE PROGRAM IN

INTERIOR DESIGN MANAGEMENT

 

 

Berkeley College is pleased to announce it has received approval from the New Jersey President’s Council to offer a new Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design Management.

 

The Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design Management was developed in response to student and workplace demand.  Graduates who major in Interior Design Management are prepared for success in entry-level careers as project managers with construction, interior design and architectural firms.   


Required courses in this field build upon the challenging two-year interior design curriculum by incorporating a full complement of project management courses. 

 

“There is a growing need for well prepared project managers throughout the Metro New York region,” says Berkeley College Chair of Interior Design, Kevin Byrne, ASID.  “The combination of content in this curriculum is brand new, and graduates with this degree can earn higher salaries.”

 

“Offering this new degree is consistent with the mission of Berkeley College and its long-standing commitment to provide quality, student-centered, professional education, especially in fields that are experiencing a shortage of personnel and are continuing to grow,” says Berkeley College Interim President, Dr. Rose Mary Healy. “These graduates will be knowledgeable about interior design skills as well as both basic and specialized business practices. This is a brand new, unique curriculum.” 

 

Transfer students who hold two-year degrees or have successfully completed the appropriate undergraduate courses in interior design are eligible to have those courses considered for application toward the requirements of the Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design Management.  The business and upper-level courses are available online as well as onsite, and are taught by the same faculty.
