Interested in pursuing careers in the built environment such as architecture or interior design?

Samford’s Division of Art and Design is expanding its degree offerings beyond its successful interior design degree to now include a new 5-year degree track in architecture, offering a 4-year BS in Architecture followed by a 1-year accelerated Masters of Architecture.

For over 35 years, Samford has offered a CIDA accredited interior design program that has graduated students with a unique professional perspective.  Housed in Samford’s School of the Arts, students in both programs will study art as the foundation of the design process.  Through Samford University’s collective curriculum offerings and Christian mission, students gain an appreciation not only for all aspects of design but also view the world through a faith-based lens.  

Enhanced by Birmingham’s vibrant design community, our programs allow students to work and be mentored by design professionals. Field trips, travel, internships and professional juries are integral elements of the course of study.  Our full-time faculty has a combined experience of over 65 years in professional practice and continue to be active in the local and national design community.
