Honours Bachelor of Interior Design

Build a career in the growing interior design profession.

Sheridan is one of eight schools in Ontario to offer a bachelor's degree in interior design. The program is in the process of obtaining CIDA accreditation (Council for Interior Design Accreditation).

Practical hands-on training

  • 2D and 3D computer software, including AUTOCAD, SketchUp, Revit and other design software.
  • Project management skills.
  • Sustainability and socially responsible practices.
  • 4-month co-op semester.
  • Building systems and construction knowledge.

A professional learning environment

At Sheridan, we've applied interior design principles to our own learning environments. Our studios are designed to look and feel like professional spaces, rather than classrooms. Interior design is a mobile computing program, which means you'll have unlimited access to software, class lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, reading lists, assignment outlines, and all other course resources.

Annual field trips

We organize an annual field trip to New York, plus occasional trips to Chicago and other locations. You'll even have an opportunity to take courses in Italy throughout the Spring/Summer session.

Additional information

Our innovative program has always kept pace with rising professional standards in the interior design industry. We're recognized by the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO).

Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program will provide the practical, hands-on training and creative approach that we built our reputation on, while also introducing more theoretical and research components.

Above all, you'll learn by doing. You'll work with practicing interior design professionals who have extensive industry experience. You'll also get a hands-on interior design education, graduating with an applied degree and a set of skills that translate directly to the workplace.

You'll enter the job market with advanced knowledge of AUTOCAD, Revit, Photoshop, Illustrator and other relevant software. As well, you'll be prepared to write construction specifications and to read and apply the Ontario Building Code (OBC), along with other relevant codes and legislation. You'll also have a 14-week work placement under your belt, completed at the end of your third year at Sheridan.

CIDA (The Council for Interior Design Accreditation) is an independent, non-profit accrediting organization for interior design education programs at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. The Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program curriculum was developed to meet CIDA standards and is currently preparing for an accreditation review.

Campus location update: Moving to HMC in Winter 2017

For the Fall 2016 semester, Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program courses will be held at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, Ontario. We expect that the program will be moving to our Hazel McCallion Campus (HMC) in Mississauga, Ontario in January, for the start of the Winter 2017 semester.
