Southeast Design Program



Southeast Missouri State Interior Design Program is officially an NKBA accredited program as of last May! It's a big deal for our school and students in the program! Especially for those of us who may pursue kitchen and bath design. This basically means that top dogs at NKBA came and inspected our program and work after months and months of preparation and approved that we were overachievers of how the NKBA wishes students to be taught. They decided that we were exceptional and a program for others to model after. It definitely encourages us. 

Ten years ago, the design teachers in our department sought this accreditation and an even bigger accreditation by CIDA (Counsel for Interior Design Accreditation). Our teachers and students are working diligently towards CIDA. We will supposedly achieve by hopefully next year! It's a pretty big deal...  As this will be the only program within the area of course with the accreditation. Future employers will see the CIDA accreditation as a big deal.
