The Interior Design program at ALHOSNU will educate students in the creative activity of conceptualizing, modifying and realizing the design of space to support human activity and delight, emphasizing the discipline as an architecturally related program.  Interior Design plays an active role in creating this context for cultural development and interaction by establishing the designed conditions within which all human activity takes place. It is a discipline that embraces the cultural conditions, historical contexts, and symbolic meanings of societies, by creating relationships between human beings and the constructs of their imagination. It is also one that attempts to integrate design within the present and future of evolving ideas, technologies and changing cultural values as an expression of personality, creativity, craft and culture.
The program experience seeks to enable students to develop their own expression of ideas through both verbal and visual development and practice. Drawing on a depth of insight, emerging designers learn to create alternative design solutions for changing cultural, economic and social realities. Producers of interior images, places and environments, they will define, enhance and transform our vision of the world.
To achieve this mission the program has several goals:
  • To provide a rigorous foundation in both the theory and practice of Interior Design through an applied studio–based experience, research and field internship.
  • To prepare students to actively engage in the Interior Design profession with the confidence and capability necessary to assume leadership roles in developing creative, expressive, and habitable interior environments in a variety of applications.
  • To provide a broad contextual understanding of the fundamental aspects of human environment and culture by offering education in related liberal studies such as sociology, ecology, history, science and the humanities.
  • To provide knowledge of the processes, technology, and applied techniques utilized in the planning, design, building and construction of interior space.
  • To give students an understanding of physical, economic, professional and business skills necessary for Interior Design practice.
  • To advance the Interior Design discipline through the research, work, and projects carried out at the school To develop evocative and meaningful solutions focusing on the design of interior spaces, materials, decoration, furniture and fixtures in a variety of contexts and to focus on teaching a methodology of innovation.
  • To create an emphasis on design, which is responsive to peoples cultural, functional and aesthetic needs, and that has a beneficial impact on peoples lives by providing a strong foundation of cultural and design knowledge To expand the competence of the interior designer to embrace the behavioral sciences and the understanding of cultural anthropology by assuming the role of the designer as social innovator.
  • To provide the application of knowledge and theory into practice through the creative and experiential learning of the studio, and the practical application of theory through materials, methods, technology and practice.
  • To adopt a design methodology and process of research, analysis, design, and presentation, with a strong emphasis on conceptual development, by emphasizing aspects of research, writing and design theory.
  • To provide a program that relates concept to aesthetics, presentation, decoration and applied arts centered on human need and sensibility.
  • To encourage a spirit of collaboration through studio work, and multi–discipline teamwork and collaboration on projects.
Careers in Interior Design

Today, schools in both Canada and the United States are attempting to provide a broader education augmented by discipline-specific training in technology, materials, process and practice to meet current professional accreditation standards and to prepare those students who are seeking careers as professional interior designers.

ALHOSNU’s four year program is conceived to meet the requirements for a Bachelor of Interior Design (B.I.D.) to prepare the graduate for internship and practice within an Interior Design office, to meet and acquire professional licensure to satisfy established international accreditation requirements, and for professional Interior Design practice in the United Arab Emirates, and surrounding regions.

Consideration should be given to professional accrediting bodies in North America, Europe and even Asia since today the design practice may cross many borders, and students embarking in leadership design roles may be doing so in the stream of global economy and migration that many business entrepreneurs have embraced.
