Two Year Professional Certificate Program

Program Overview

The two year Professional Certificate Program in Eco-Sustainable Design prepares the student to enter the world of sustainable design and acquire the skills necessary to create interior architectural environments. Emphasis is placed on the development of creative skills and problem-solving strategies for designing within constructed environments with a sustainable approach. The institution encourages a philosophy of practicum-supported learning in which students integrate theory and practice in all of their studies in order to increase professional personal growth, self-confidence, interpersonal skills, an understanding of self and diversity when designing, and a heightened sense of ethical standards. Please note, all students enrolled in Certificate Programs are required to take a three week course of Italian language before the start of the Certificate Program.
