In addition to classroom projects, students participate in various community service projects, interdisciplinary design charrettes, attend field trips, and participate locally in professional organizations such as ASID, IIDA and NKBA.

Students graduating with the Interior Design Professional Sales degree meet guidelines for the practice of residential and commercial interior design, are academically prepared to sit for the CKD (Certified Kitchen Design) exam, gain membership in professional organizations, become licensed, and after two years of experience in the field sit for the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) exam.
