Interior design program earns professional accolades and full reaccreditation

Baylor’s interior design program, which leads to the BA and BS degree in Family and Consumer Sciences, has received a renewal of full accreditation following a positive review by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation.

In a letter from CIDA executive director Holly Mattson dated May 11, 2012, the interior design program in the College of Arts & Sciences received notice that it had been awarded reaccreditation for a period of six years beginning April 2012.

In her letter, Mattson went on to say that the reaccreditation “attests to the quality of your interior design program and benefits your program in many ways. Parents, students and employers of graduates can be assured that your program meets the rigors of peer review and develops the skills and knowledge required to practice interior design.”

Dr. Suzy H. Weems, chair and professor of family and consumer sciences, said the CIDA report gave special accolades to a number of aspects of Baylor’s interior design program.

“The report included mention of our students’ teamwork and collaboration skills, their communication ability using various venues, their sketching ability and the quality of the boards they created,” Weems said. “Important also was the high praise given for our well-educated and qualified faculty and the cooperative, supportive environment that exists in the interior design program.”
