Interior Design Gets FIDER Accreditation

The Samford interior design program has received accreditation by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research, making it one of only about 130 FIDER-accredited programs in the U.S. and Canada.

Among the features cited by FIDER was the program's close academic relationship with the University's art department. Interior design majors are required to have a strong foundation in art.

FIDER is a specialized accrediting agency for interior design programs at universities and colleges in North America. It stresses promoting interior design education through research and accreditation.

The interior design program is part of Samford's Department of Human Sciences and Design, located in the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education and Professional Studies.
