Interior Design Interior Architecture


My education at BJU equipped me well for being successful in the workforce. I worked for a year out of college at an architectural firm where I drafted blueprints, manufacturing drawings and installation guides for wood acoustical paneling systems. I then transitioned into an interior design firm, where I am currently working, located north of Travelers Rest, South Carolina. As I have begun to work on multimillion dollar homes in the Cliffs communities, I have been excited to find that principles and techniques taught through my classes at BJU have given me a firm foundation to build on.

Interior architecture and design is often confused with interior decorating. While both are valid professions, it is important for prospective students to realize that the degree offered at BJU is one of design. The degree is very demanding and thoroughly covers a variety of subjects and disciplines including: hand drafting, CAD drafting, history of design, drawing, graphic design, schedule making, preparing design boards, and presentation.


Not only does BJU offer excellent programs, but the facilities and opportunities are excellent as well. I was privileged to compete as an intercollegiate athlete for the University and participate in several world-class drama productions. I truly believe that there is not a school to rival the excellence in programs, the quality of facilities, the faculty, as well as the firm foundation on biblical principles BJU provides. The numerous opportunities available to every student who is willing to be challenged to reach their full potential add to my list of reasons I am glad I chose to study interior design at BJU.


Bob Jones University was an obvious choice for my studies as its programs have an excellent foundation on biblical principles, and it\u2019s one of the few Christian universities offering a degree in interior design. As I began my journey into the world of design, I quickly realized how complicated and demanding the program would be. Although the rigor of projects, exams and presentations is difficult, they are both manageable and rewarding. Diane Mattox and Laurilyn Hall (who are the design instructors at BJU) are well equipped to handle any interior design problems or spiritual challenges their students are constantly dealing with. Their passion for design and their heart for their students is inspiring and impactful. I am still grateful for the way Mrs. Mattox was able to show grace to me and was able to give me much needed spiritual guidance as I was struggling to handle my academic load.\nMy education at BJU equipped me well for being successful in the workforce.

I had no idea what all went into this vocation when I began this program, but I quickly learned of the many opportunities that exist.\nIn the few short years since graduating from the interior design program, I have been able to move up within my company and am now currently the Design Team Lead. I strongly believe that the preparation I received while studying at Bob Jones University is what has led to my success today.\nIn my career I have the wonderful opportunity to mentor and critique student work from many different colleges across the state of North Carolina. I can honestly say that the standards and curriculum set by the staff at BJU exceed many programs I come into contact with today. The variety of courses and level of professionalism expected from its students is a rare find among many design programs. The offering of a full liberal arts education with the high quality of art and design courses sets BJU apart from many other programs.\nAbove all else, I am so thankful for the wonderful faulty at BJU. They will never know how much their love and support has meant to me. Not only did they teach me how to do something that I love, they showed me what it means to love God and others first. \u00a0The love that the faculty has for their students is felt through their passion and eagerness to help you reach your greatest potential. I am very excited to see what is in store and to know many wonderful new designers will benefit from this program.\n","time":1492516129,"category":"grad-testimonies","format":false,"sticky":"false","meta":"_edit_last":["6"],"_thumbnail_id":["1964"],"image":"","thumbnail":"","image-caption":"","title":"Kara Franseen","content":"When I first began in the interior design program, I had little to no understanding of either the definition or scope of \u201cinterior design.\u201d All I knew was that the Lord was leading me to explore this knack I had for understanding space and caring about how those spaces affected people. Fast-forward almost five years, and I\u2019m working as an interior designer in a commercial art and design firm in Greenville, South Carolina, and thriving.\nAs I progressed through class after class\u2014from History of Interior Design to Graphics for Interior Design to Sustainable Design\u2014I learned that interior design is, at its core, creative problem-solving. As interior designers we meet people right where they live and work, implementing strategies to effectively impact their experience for the better. We look at communication problems or productivity problems (which are just the tip of the iceberg), and then figure out what we can do in the space to enhance collaboration among employees or encourage students to be fully engaged. The interior architecture and design program at BJU equips its students with the best possible skill set to go out into the industry and set the standard just a little bit higher than it was before.\nThis program teaches more than space-planning or codes\u2014it teaches design as a whole. I learned how to brainstorm ideas, evaluate client needs, think conceptually and work out a solution piece by piece until the best possible result was achieved. I love the challenge that is interior design, and I fully believe that this program equipped me in the best way possible to succeed as a designer in this field.\nI would encourage anyone who cares about details, who loves a challenge or who senses an ability to understand the spaces around them to consider BJU\u2019s interior architecture and design program. It is difficult and fascinating and worth every late night spent working on projects.\n","time":1490029934,"category":"grad-testimonies","format":false,"sticky":"false","meta":"_edit_last":["6"],"grad-year":["2016"],"_thumbnail_id":["1736"],"occupation":["Interior Designer at LS3P Associates Ltd."],"_edit_lock":["1513354041:2"],"image":"","thumbnail":"","image-caption":"","title":"Jillianne Mattox","content":"I transferred into interior design from a business major during my sophomore year of college, after realizing that I wanted to pursue the creative and designer side of my personality. The interior design faculty were very supportive of this change and made the transfer as easy as possible.\nWhile I knew that interior design is more than arranging furniture and selecting paint colors, I found myself amazed at how much I enjoyed learning about lighting, building systems and building codes, building materials, designs for people with disabilities and commercial design. These classes, along with a computer class in which I learned computer drafting skills, provided me with the qualifications to earn my job working with government agencies to ensure that the plans for their work spaces are efficient, accurate and up-to-date.\nTwo other concepts that were continually taught\u2014line upon line and precept upon precept, as my teachers would say\u2014have proven to be very important in my day-to-day life in the office. They are the concepts of professionalism and timeliness. In addition, my colleagues and managers often comment on the quality of my presentation skills and focused work ethic that were highly stressed in my interior design classes as well. I am extremely grateful for the interior design faculty pushing those of us in the program to go beyond what we thought we could do! As a result, even though I am the youngest employee, I have been able to advance to higher positions in the company.\nMost of all I am thankful for the godly faculty at BJU. We were always reminded that every task we did was ultimately to show God\u2019s glory. I would highly recommend BJU\u2019s newly revised and updated interior architecture and design major to anyone who believes God is leading them into the design field.\n","time":1490029920,"category":"grad-testimonies","format":false,"sticky":"false","meta":"_edit_last":["6"],"grad-year":["2012"],"_thumbnail_id":["1733"],"occupation":["Quality Assurance Specialist at ALEX - Alternative Experts, LLC"],"image":"","thumbnail":"","image-caption":"","title":"Grace Labossiere","content":"Bob Jones University\u2019s interior design program truly prepares its students for success by offering a broad selection of classes, each introducing us to a different part of our versatile field. After learning the basics of building systems, structural codes and common materials, we branch into specific studies such as interior lighting for the designer and commercial and residential interior design. Through individual and group projects, I feel prepared to enter the workforce with the foundational knowledge of health care, restaurant, retail, hospitality and residential design, as well as the practical skill of working as part of a design team.\nOur dedicated teachers believe in not only instructing us in today\u2019s methods and trends, but also giving us the tools for continual learning and development on the job. For that reason, we receive training in forms of digital and print presentation such as the Adobe Suite, Autodesk AutoCAD and Revit, and Google SketchUp. These skills have not only enhanced my project presentations, but have proved infinitely useful in work and volunteer opportunities outside of the classroom.\nMost people don\u2019t know that interior design is more than rearranging furniture and selecting homey knick-knacks. A designer\u2019s depth of knowledge about space allocation, building codes and adjacency patterns are typically a shock to people. BJU\u2019s interior design program has been developed to prepare students to tackle design problems of all sizes, from small-scale homes to large commercial complexes, and I know I am leaving with the capability and knowledge to do just that.\n","time":1413383397,"category":"grad-testimonies","format":false,"sticky":"false","meta":"_edit_last":["5"],"grad-year":["2014"],"_thumbnail_id":["910"],"image":"","thumbnail":"","image-caption":""];carousel.init();});Your FutureJobsArchitects and designers are emerging as leaders in developing buildings that respond to human needs within a space.
