Discover the creative world of interior design

Passionate about interior design and its possibilities? Intrigued by what's on the inside? Interior design is the study of interior spaces in private and public places. Interior designers are the professionals who create the environments where we live, work, learn and relax. In a multifaceted profession drawing on creative inspiration and technical proficiency, interior designers meet the challenges of functionality, accessibility, safety and quality in residential, retail, commercial, hospitality and healthcare projects. Studying interior design and environments at Griffith, you'll gain the skills to tackle real interior design challenges and devise innovative strategies and solutions, advancing your critical and strategic thinking at the same time.
