School Overview

In 1916, Sherrill Whiton established the New York School of Interior Decoration. At the time, interior design was just beginning to take shape as a distinct and recognized profession—one that required training in everything from art history to the play of light on walls and other surfaces. Today, the school still holds to the firm belief in the importance of sustainability, in fostering the dialogue between the fields of interior design and architecture, and in the future of accreditation standards in education and licensing of practitioners in the interior design profession.

New York School of Interior Design offers associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees in interior design, as well as professional certificates. Two master's degrees and a certificate are offered completely online.
