Good Questions: Parsons Interior Design Program?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I am currently in to midst of shifting professional goals (from psychology to interior design) and was just accepted into the Parsons AAS interior design program, which I was ecstatic about until learning that the program has lost its FIDER accreditation. I was under the impression that this was one of the most respected programs. What do you think about this?

Thank you! Marissa

We recieved this question last night and to be honest, we didn't know about this and are not sure what this means for Parsons. We had only prevously heard good things. We therefore put this out there in the hopes that SOMEONE can shed light on this gobbledy-gook that the Design World is ratcheting up as inerior design gets taken more and more seriously.

What is the word on Parsons? (Thanks, Marissa!) MGR
