Whether it is as familiar and human scale as a home or office environment or as dramatic and monumental as the design of an international airport, our surroundings have a significant impact on the way we live and on the experiences we have every day.
Interior designers, recognize the importance of this impact and focus their attention on ergonomics, anthropometrics, and the foundation elements and theories of design to create distinct, responsive, functional, and dynamic environments for living and working.
As an interior architecture major at Ohio University, you will learn how these elements interact and synthesize to meet the physical, psychological, social, and intellectual needs of people in a variety of settings. If you are sensitive to the use of materials and details in the built environment, are attentive to color, enjoy drawing, constructing, and organizing objects and spaces to form interesting and complex designs, interior architecture may offer a challenging and fulfilling career choice for you.
