Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design at Brenau University focuses on the study of the design of the built environment with emphasis in interior design or architectural studies. Like the profession, classes and projects are multi-faceted within the major. Students take design foundation classes in computer drafting and design, sketching, rendering, graphic communication and design/architectural history. Technical interior architectural coursework focuses on building systems, codes, detailing, materiality, business principles, textiles and lighting in the built environment. Studio courses bring the diverse elements of design and technical courses together through projects in residential design, hotel and retail design, universal design and commercial office environments. Sustainable design solutions, emphasis on the human factor, and aesthetic applications are required in all studios. This 125 credit hour program is offered at the Historic Gainesville campus during the day and at the North Atlanta – Norcross campus during the evenings.
