The Interior Design Major consists of course work completed through a cooperative program with Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). MATC-Mequon Campus is just a 5-minute drive from Concordia and offers two unique choices to prepare students for an exciting career designing residential and commercial interiors; Interior Design Foundations and Interior Design Specializations. In addition to the 45-credit Liberal Arts core requirements (completed on the Concordia Campus) and required courses listed below, all interior design majors must complete requirements for a minor. To develop skills necessary for the most successful career, an Art or Business minor is strongly recommended. Students selecting the Business Minor should work closely with their advisor regarding appropriate core course choices.
