UMass Dartmouth was the best school in my area that offered an Interior Architecture and Design program. This is an accredited school, increasing the appeal of getting my degree here. My program is particularly small, so although it is a large campus, there is still a feeling of a close-knit community.
I genuinely enjoy the curriculum I'm in because it is challenging but directly teaches me the lessons I will be required to be knowledgable in my career. The professors are also excellent in helping their students in both their school work and also in seeking out jobs in the professional world.
