School of Architecture and Interior Design
The School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) at the University of Cincinnati prepares students for critical practice. Our students engage with the principles, traditions, and requirements of building in all its aspects, interior and exterior. Our goal is to advance the professions of Architecture and Interior Design by combining ethical judgment, creative research and technical proficiency in pursuit of excellence. We seek to nurture a life-long world view that recognizes the designer’s responsibility to the environment, society, and the profession. Students are encouraged to take risks with their design ideas, and develop the skills to communicate them. The faculty and students of SAID strive to advance the discourse of environmental design, to respond effectively to change, and to integrate research with technical expertise.
Undergraduate degrees are offered in Architecture and Interior Design. Master of Architecture, Master of Interior Design, Master of Science in Architecture, and PhD of Architecture degrees are offered at the graduate level. A minor in Architectural Studies is also available.
As part of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, the Interior Design program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Arts and Design (NASAD).
