Klaudia, MA Interior Design
Klaudia mapped out a strategy for becoming an interior designer. She did her research, found Suffolk’s CIDA-accredited program, left her banking job and was ready to move back to Massachusetts. Her last step was how to expedite her preparation for grad school.
After obtaining my BA, I worked in the banking industry for seven years. I have always been a creative person, but had considered art to be just a hobby, not something I could actually do for a living. I finally decided that I wanted a career that would be creatively enriching and rewarding. Being the daughter of a contractor and great wood worker, I have always been interested in interior architecture and design, so I decided to go forward with my career change and started researching schools on the east coast.
My Path to Grad School
I was looking for a CIDA accredited school in Massachusetts and that’s when I found Suffolk. I was interested in the Pre-Graduate Program, because my degree was in an unrelated field, and I knew much of my undergraduate coursework wasn’t applicable to the preparatory classes required for graduate study in interior design. The summer Pre-Graduate Program though was a way for me to get that training over a short period of time, so that I could be ready for the Master’s Program. Taking four courses in ten-weeks made me appreciate the intensity of the interior design program. I feel that it really prepared me for my first semester of graduate school and gave me an advantage over those who had not gone through the Pre-Graduate Program, or as we all called it “Art School Boot Camp.”
