Interior Design Minor
Program Chair: Sarah McGarry
Telephone: (303) 315-1000
The Interior Design program at CAP teaches fundamentals of interior design through a holistic, integrated, and experiential approach. Interior design combines the pragmatics of space planning and programming with the poetics of human experience and placemaking. Interior Design is a field that complements other offerings in the College of Architecture and Planning and provides those pursuing other degrees with an opportunity to amplify their skills and distinguish themselves in the marketplace.
CAP offers the only Interior Design program in the State of Colorado that benefits from having Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Planning programs. This program will offer students a grounding in the fundamental skill and concepts for interior design and technical practice.
The minor is a 15-credit hour program.
- All undergraduate students at CU Denver are eligible to minor in Interior Design.
- This is an on-campus program.
