DesignIntelligence has recognized the B.S. in interior design and M.S. in interior architecture programs at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) in its prestigious annual rankings.

“It’s great to be recognized by professionals and educators in our field for our excellence in areas born from our mission, including transdisciplinary collaboration and sustainable design practice,” said Lauren Baumbach, director of the interior design and interior architecture programs at Jefferson. “These areas of focus have long been integrated into our design education and culture. We’re also proud to be honored for our focus on project planning and practice management—areas that prepare our students well for leadership roles in the profession. None of this would be possible without our excellent faculty and dedicated students.”
