For details on how Sheridan programs will be delivered in upcoming semesters, please review our Fall 2022 Program Delivery Modes.
At Sheridan, we've applied interior design principles to our own learning environments. Our studios are designed to look and feel like professional spaces, rather than classrooms. Interior design is a mobile computing program, which means you'll have unlimited access to software, class lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, reading lists, assignment outlines, and all other course resources.
We organize an annual field trip to New York, plus occasional trips to Chicago and other locations. You'll even have an opportunity to take courses in Italy throughout the Spring/Summer session.
Sheridan's innovative Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program has always kept pace with rising professional standards in the interior design industry. Our program is recognized by the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO), and accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA).
Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program will provide the practical, hands-on training and creative approach that we built our reputation on, while also introducing more theoretical and research components.
Above all, you'll learn by doing. You'll work with practicing interior design professionals who have extensive industry experience. You'll also get a hands-on interior design education, graduating with an applied degree and a set of skills that translate directly to the workplace.
You'll enter the job market with advanced knowledge of AUTOCAD, Revit, Photoshop, Illustrator and other relevant software. As well, you'll be prepared to write construction specifications and to read and apply the Ontario Building Code (OBC), along with other relevant codes and legislation. You'll also have a 14-week work placement under your belt, completed at the end of your third year at Sheridan.
The interior design program leading to the Sheridan Honours Bachelor of Interior Design degree is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation, 206 Grandville Avenue, Suite 350, Grand Rapids, MI, 49503.
The CIDA-accredited program prepares students for entry-level interior design practice, for advanced study, and to apply for membership in professional interior design organizations. The Honours Bachelor of Interior Design degree granted by Sheridan College meets the educational requirement for eligibility to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualification Examination (NCIDQ Exam).

Sheridan has been granted a consent by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer this degree for a further seven-year term starting July 28, 2017 and subject to renewal thereafter. Application to the Ministry for renewal of the consent is a prescribed and cyclical requirement for degree programs at all Ontario Colleges. Sheridan will ensure that all students admitted to the Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program during the period of consent will have the opportunity to complete the program within a reasonable time frame. Credentials earned during the period of consent remain valid, even if Ministry consent to offer the program is withdrawn in the future. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs (e.g. acceptable to potential employers, professional licensing bodies, or other educational institutions).
While many of our graduates will be able to go directly into established architectural or interior design firms, many other career paths beckon.
Sample Employment Areas
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May–August) between the 3rd and 4th year.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You'll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the Internship. The Internship component is delivered by Sheridan's Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 Co-op/Internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
