WHY STUDY INTERIOR DESIGN AT WENTWORTH?
Boston as a laboratory for design education - Boston's historic and contemporary buildings are used as models and precedents for study, as well as the cultural and social aspects of an urban environment. Wentworth students gain free admission to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
Study Abroad Berlin - Interior Design students have the opportunity to study in Berlin, Germany in the summer term of their Junior year. You can read more about the program and see photos from the latest group abroad here.
Dedicated studio space - Starting in the sophomore year you will have your own workstation that can be used seven days a week to work independently and collaboratively on your projects.
The challenge of working with award-winning students - Wentworth interior design students consistently win competitions and awards in local and national design competitions. Visit our website for examples of winning projects here.
