ABSTRACT: Interior design educational programs accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER) are found in a variety of academic homes within public land-grant universities. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare noted interior design programs found in architecture, fine arts, and human ecology. The programs under study were identified through a national ranking of interior design programs. This study explored relationships among the academic unit and the curriculum content, faculty characteristics, and alumni placement.

This research study explored Interior Design Master's Degree programs and looked at the preparation emerging educators received to teach Interior Design at higher level institutions. The study examined current graduate programs to find out how teaching objectives are incorporated into curricula. Earlier research showed that graduate schools are aware that many students want to teach Interior Design, and a possible disconnect between emerging educators and program objectives was suspect. The project reviewed thirteen master's degree programs through personal interviews with university representatives and program graduates. Required skill sets and the unique challenges of teaching Interior Design were also examined. Results of this research supported previous research conclusions that many students pursue teaching after graduation. The findings suggested that university programs are aware that preparation to teach is of consequence, and some programs incorporate teaching objectives into curricula to address students' needs. Further exploration is necessary to direct additional research.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether program chairs in interior design have a preferred degree credential for candidates seeking a full-time, tenure-track position or other full-time position at their institution and to determine if there is a correlation between this preference and the program chair’s university’s demographics, their own credentials, or their acceptance of an online terminal degree. Data were collected for the 2 research questions using a quantitative survey instrument. Multiple regression analysis was used to analyze the relationship between the dependent variable, the Hiring Perception Scale and the independent variables, characteristics of the program. Multiple regression analysis was also used to analyze the relationship between the dependent variable, the Hiring Perception Scale and the independent variables, the program chair’s credentials. The survey instrument was a self-administered online questionnaire divided into 5 sections. Some of the demographic categories utilized in the survey instrument were developed by the Interior Design Educators Council (2008) in their member survey. Other questions were designed based on questions used on a survey by Adams and DeFleur (2005). Their survey examined the acceptability of doctoral degrees earned online as credential for obtaining a faculty position. The group of participants for the survey was composed of interior design-program chairs in interior design programs accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation. The results from analyses appeared to show only institution type, “Public” and land-grant status predicted hiring perceptions. The five variables that were related to individual characteristics of the program chair did not predict hiring perceptions. This study has provided the preferred degree preference by interior design chairs for fulltime positions. Findings revealed acceptance of online terminal degrees and the most valued credentials preferred by interior design chairs.

The first desk reference on technical building systems for interior designers Building Systems for Interior Designers is the first book to explain technical building systems and engineering issues in a clear and accessible way to interior designers. The technical knowledge and vocabulary presented here allow interior designers to communicate more effectively with architects, engineers, and contractors while collaborating on projects, leading to more accurate solutions for problems related to a broad range of other building considerations with an impact on interior design. Information on sustainable design is integrated throughout the book, making it a relevant tool for current and emerging trends in building design. Written in a straightforward, nontechnical style that maintains depth and accuracy, this book is the first complete text applicable to interior design courses and provides thorough preparation for the NCIDQ exam. Engaging, clear illustrations support the text, which is accessible to those without a math or physics background. Topics covered include: Heating and air conditioning systems Environmental issues Water and waste Thermal comfort HVAC systems Electricity Lighting Security and communications systems Fire safety Transportation systems With numerous case examples illustrating how interior designers apply this material in the real world, Building Systems for Interior Designers is a valuable book for students, as well as a practical desktop reference for professionals. Content from this book is available as an online continuing professional education course at http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-320255.html#fire_safety.
