No, but we encourage students to gain real-world experience through spring break shadowing and practice previews, internships, education abroad treks, and any other ways to get to know the world and the place of design within it.
This varies from year to year. But, for example, nearly every 2016 graduate of the School of Interiors has a job. Some had them before graduation but more typically the transition to the profession occurs in the first few months after graduation. Because so many of our students participate in shadowing and internships, these transitions often happen at some of the very same firms and in the very same cities where students have spent some time.
All over the United States and around the world. Though a strong concentration in Kentucky, we have graduates practicing in major metropolitan areas such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, as well as regional cities – Nashville, Cincinnati, Louisville, St. Louis, and Lexington. One graduate from the School of Interiors recently got a job in Dublin, Ireland.
Faculty with wide-ranging educational and life experience. Design happens from so many perspectives that one of the qualities we seek in our faculty as a whole is diversity of talent and training. The more ways that students can see the world through these various perspectives, the better off they will be in making the transition to the professional world where they will encounter, as graduates, that same broad spectrum of viewpoints.
Studio culture is part think tank, part petri dish…a place where anything can happen and often does. Because the college has committed work spaces for every student that remains theirs each semester, students find many types of peers in studio who help them stretch and see various design perspectives and approaches. Usually messy, these creative spaces help students bond, provide locations for one-on-one interactions with design professors, and produce world-class work.
