Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences (B.S.F.C.S.) Major in Interior Design

Minimum required: 120 semester credit hours

General Requirements

  1. The general education core curriculum courses are listed in the degree plan below along with the statewide component code number. See the General Education Core Curriculum section of this catalog for the Texas State requirements and options in the core curriculum, including Honors courses.

  2. A Texas State GPA of 2.0 is required to graduate.
  3. This major is required to take specialized courses in Interior Design including history of furnishings and architecture, residential and commercial interior design, research and programming, professional practices, and portfolio design. Visual communication courses, such as drawing and rendering are taken in the School of Art and Design.
  4. A proficiency review for all Interior Design students is conducted by the Interior Design faculty immediately upon completion of all ID 2322 coursework. The purpose of the review process is to ensure that the most qualified students, evidenced by adequate skill and knowledge level, will advance in the program. Students must pass proficiency review to proceed to new Interior Design coursework, including the studio sequence beginning with ID 2323.
  5. It is strongly suggested that students consider transferring into the program prior to meeting all general education core curriculum requirements because course options may be limited. The completion of the Interior Design major course requirements requires a minimum of eight semesters due to strict sequencing, regardless of other credit hours accumulated.
  6. Students participate in an internship in a related area. 
  7. Students must pass all required Interior Design and Art classes with a grade of “C” or higher. Any student making a grade of “D” or lower in ID or ART courses may not proceed to the next level course until a grade of “C” or higher is achieved.
  8. Students must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
  9. Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
  10. If two years of the same modern language are taken in high school, then no additional language hours will be required for the degree. In the absence of modern language taken in high school, then two semesters of the same modern language (1410 and 1420) must be taken at the college level, and the requirement will be added to the student's degree audit.
