Designers usually have a bachelor’s degree, though that degree does not have to be in interior design. Many design-oriented workers end up in the field after working in other careers. More often than not, CAD, interior design, and drawing classes are recommended. Multiple interior design degrees are available, including associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degree.
In the United States, licensing for designers varies from state to state. Some states stipulate that only someone with a license may be called an interior designer, though all designers can perform interior design work.
