USU Interior Architecture & Design is currently ranked 8th in the top 20 Interior Design Schools
A career in interior design can be a fruitful one. Fulfilling those goals, however, will mean getting an education that can make that happen. Among the many considerations that should be considered when choosing a school for interior design, two are among the most important. One of those factors, tuition, is essentially universal for nearly everyone. Another important factor is the graduation rate because accomplishing those goals begins with finishing your degree.
