SUMMARY

A degree in Interior Design is a valuable choice and often an obligatory first step for undergraduates choosing to pursue a career as an interior designer, a sofa artisan, or a rug craftsmen. In fact, interior design is of average popularity ranking as the 121st most popular major. Last academic year alone, there were 2,721 interior design graduates. In-state tuition for interior design at private institutions is, on average, 3.4 times more spendy than their public rivals.

There are 172 universities that offer interior design. 172 universities is on par with other degrees offered in the United States. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other interior design undergrads, look at schools in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to interior design annually. More generally, the best region to major in interior design is in the Southeast region with The University of Alabama, AI Miami International University of Art and Design, and Savannah College of Art and Design best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to major in interior design is the Big Twelve Conference with Iowa State University, Oklahoma State University-Main Campus, and Texas Christian University representing the conference. From our extensive list on the best colleges, our belief is that the best university for interior design is George Washington University.

The objectively 'best' school does not have to be the best school for you. There might be tons of angels to consider when deciding on institution. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would affect one's inclinations on where to go to school. At Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which interior design university boasts the top college campus, the answer is Michigan State University. If you are primarily interested in which school has the best campus, then we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more in order to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and, from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for interior design is University of Florida. Curious why? Keep reading to learn more about our top recommendations. Some of our picks will probably surprise you.

If cost is a primary factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding George Washington University. George Washington University appears to be our most expensive college for interior design, at least for out of state students. We do have a list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of George Washington University into perspective. For more context, you could be interested to know that interior design is the 190th most expensive program in the nation, with an average cost of $30,700. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for interior design in the country is District of Columbia demonstrated by a tuition of $54,453 at the main college in the state George Washington University. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for interior design is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with George Washington University with a cost of $54,453, Pratt Institute-Main with a cost of $51,754, and Drexel University with a cost of $52,146.

Our cheapest region for interior design is the Plains region which is represented by Park University with a cost of $7,999, North Dakota State University-Main Campus with a cost of $12,413, and South Dakota State University with a cost of $11,172. More optimistically, the most affordable university for interior design is Fashion Institute of Technology. Authority's full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay around $10,000 for a degree in interior design. The cost swells intensely to an average of $23,500 for the out-of-state public-school student. On that note, our selection for the college representing the best value for interior design: George Washington University. On this page you will see our comprehensive list on the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. With that said, this idea is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for interior design majors can cover a wide range, but two years after graduation graduates will typically earn around $52,800. There can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $86,300. Right out of university, the lowest end positions within the interior design space make $33,100, which is an alright wage. The highest earning graduates from interior design graduated from Drexel University and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of interior design ranks below average, ranking in the 42nd percentile of all programs. The school with the most composite diversity for interior design is The New School and here you can find our general list of the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Interior Design major ranks only within the 89th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 56th percentile. White students compose the largest share at 59% of students studying interior design. Additionally, 90% of scholars seeking an interior design degree are women.

The median ranking for interior design professors is 2.9 stars, a score that is 27% worse than the median score for all majors; which is a subpar score. If you are looking for the most popular interior design instructor in the country, look no further than Susan Meggs at East Carolina University. This might be shocking, but the best ranked professors of interior design from student rankings are found at East Carolina University. As we including information other than just rankings we find that the university with the overall best instructors for interior design is The University of Texas at Austin. One can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the top professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for interior design is New York School of Interior Design. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have an extensive page for the hardest colleges to get into. But, we do hope you believe that looking at academics with context only formed from superlatives might cause issues. We encourage you to look at some of our other pages on different colleges and read a couple of our helpful background pages on important things to look for as your college search continues.
