El Centro's Interior Design program in downtown Dallas puts you at the center of a professional design district with opportunities for hands-on learning, student internships and immediate employment after graduation. Our faculty draw on their knowledge and experience to ensure student success.
Cooperative (co-op) education is available for second- and third-year interior design students. Students take a position with a local design firm in the area of design they want to practice. The positions are often unpaid, but paid positions are available.
Though El Centro Interior Design professor Stan Bossler died in 2013, he left a legacy to future students in the form of endowed scholarships through his estate. Read more about Stan Bossler.
Additional scholarships, such as the Allen Oliver II Memorial Scholarship and Read and Pate Scholarship, are available; ask the program coordinator or counselor about them.
