With a focus on interior design – for students seeking a basic certificate to professionals well into their careers – the New York School of Interior Design offers three undergraduate and five graduate programs. The Basic Interior Design Certificate Program is a non-degree program that can be used as a stepping stone to an Associate or Bachelor degree; while, at the other end of the spectrum, the master degree programs include specializations in interior sectors like healthcare, lighting and sustainable environments.
The school is notable for its flexible approach to study; undergrad students can pursue their education part-time or full-time, onsite, offsite or a hybrid of the two. The master’s students have full-time course loads but can opt for classes in the evenings and on weekends and for either online or onsite study.
New York School of Interior Design is also remarkable for its student to teacher ratio, which is currently 12:1.
