At the New York School of Interior Design, students have access to the broadest program offerings. NYSID is one of eight top-ranking programs around the world that we have identified as shaping the next generation of interior visionaries.
The New York School of Interior Design is devoted to preparing students for the profession, and its breadth of instruction makes its raison d’être clear. Located between Lexington and 3rd Avenues, the school offers four undergrad programs, from one to four years. In Basic, students develop a portfolio, while a BA in the history of interior design hones skills for careers in museums or design journalism.
As well, NYSID houses five grad programs, which DesignIntelligence gave top marks in its U.S. rankings for 2015. In the two MAs dedicated to working designers, candidates choose an area of focus: healthcare interior environments, sustainable interior environments or interior lighting design. “No other college offers degrees in all of these specializations,” says associate dean Barbara Lowenthal. Alumni can confidently dive into new careers; the job placement rate is well into the 90 per cent range.
New York School of Interior Design is ranked among the best in the nation, according to a new survey of practitioners by DesignIntelligence. NYSID’s graduate programs are ranked #4 in the nation and undergraduate programs are ranked #5 in the nation for 2016. And NYSID’s undergraduate and graduate programs are both ranked #3 in the East Coast region.
The College also had a strong showing for Interior Design Skills Assessment, ranking #1 in Planning; #2 in Communication Skills, Construction Methods & Materials, Cross-Disciplinary Teamwork, and Sustainable Design Practices & Principles; #3 for Design Skills; #4 for Computer Applications; and #5 for Theory.
