Residential & Commercial Interior Design

Bachelor of Science in Business 

Residential and Commercial Interior Design students gain critical skills, analytical understanding, theoretical knowledge and competency vital to the designing, planning, marketing, and selling of interior space concepts for home or office environments.

Students explore the role of residential and commercial design professionals by discovering the array of products available in the design marketplace, visiting design showrooms, and meeting with product line sales professionals and vendors.

Students learn how to create and transform new and restored home and office interiors by researching historical and contemporary trends, recommending product choices, measuring and estimating for budget requirements, and by participating in area show houses and design events. Students may also have the opportunity to be involved with the retail, wholesale, or specialty aspects of the residential and commercial design industry.

I was very fortunate to take advantage of Bay Path's study abroad program in Florence, Italy. For a whole semester I studied alongside students from other U.S. colleges—we traveled together on weekends and holiday breaks to visit many of the fantastic sights of Italy. I gained valuable insight into the similarities and differences between American and Italian design and had the chance to assist with a creative project at an Italian design studio—it was a life-altering experience!" - Ruth, Residential & Commercial Interior Design Major
