Abstract:
The main purpose of this study is to compare and analyze four interior design programs in the United States, offered at the first professional degree level, to the four interior design programs offered at the baccalaureate level in Thailand. The eight selected programs were: Arizona State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Missouri-Columbia, Rhode Island School of Design, Silpakorn University, King Mongkut's Institution of Technology, Rangsit University, and Bangkok University. The procedure for comparing these programs was made by using the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research's (FIDER's) Eight Basic Categories of Standards for accreditation. An in-depth analysis of each program was completed by breaking down the number of courses and the number of credit hours required in each interior design program and then placing each one into the appropriate FIDER category. In conclusion, the researcher found that between the two countries, the interior design programs showed much variation.
