Interior Design Accreditation Renewed

The Council for Interior Design Accreditation  re-accredited the BFA in Interior Design program at Marylhurst University for a six-year term effective March 2013.

CIDA accreditation standards broadly address the evolving components of graduate preparation for interior design practice, including:

  • critical thinking, professional values and processes that provide the framework of interior design practice;
  • core design and technical knowledge that provide the historical, theoretical and technical contents of interior design practice.

CIDA accreditation standards also address the institutional systems, structures and resources that are fundamental to providing an effective higher education learning environment for interior design.

Award of CIDA accreditation attests to the quality of the interior design program and benefits the public and program in many ways. Parents, students, and employers of graduates can be assured that the program meets the rigor of peer review and develops the skills and knowledge required to practice interior design.
