Is bsc in interior designing and bachelor in interior designing are same??

Shiksha 14th Mar, 2020


BSC in interior designing & B.Des in interior designing (bachelor's in interior designing) are different courses.

B.Des is more of a professional course with practical & drafting skills with more job opportunities & scope whereas in interior designing is an academic degree with more of theoretical study.

If you are creative then you should opt for B.des degree. Bsc is better if you want to go in teaching line. Bsc in interior designing is a 3 yrs degree & B.des is a 4 yrs course.

I hope this helps.
