FREEDOM to EXPLORE … SKILLS to EXCEL
Interior Design is the rigorous process of problem-solving that integrates the technical skills of the craftsperson, the aesthetic sensibilities of the artist, and the empathy of the humanist.
The mission of Chaminade University’s Environmental + Interior Design Program is to educate, engage and empower students to optimize design of the built environment as it relates to our global, multi- cultural, multi-generational living and working communities. Graduates are prepared to make the transition to entry-level professional practice and to collaborate with architects and related industry professionals.
Chaminade University of Honolulu (CUH) offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and an Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Environmental + Interior Design (EID). CUH-EID is the exclusive degree-granting program in the State of Hawaii. The program is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), a national leader in recognition of academic excellence and professional preparation.
