Published 9:31pm Thursday, February 2, 2012

Beginning in the fall, the Andrews University School of Architecture will become the School of Architecture, Art & Design. Three new degree programs, interior design, construction management and documentary film, will be added to the school’s offerings.

According to Carey Carscallen, dean of the School of Architecture, Art & Design, no other Seventh-day Adventist educational institution offers a four-year degree in building construction management or any programs focused on interior design.

“The church needs workers who understand its beliefs of simplicity, creativity, building and designing for the glory of God. Like other secular universities with construction management and interior design programs, our students will gain understanding of everything related to the profession. However, unlikeothers, they will also have the opportunity to participate in community service, outreach, mission work and even the opportunity to study abroad,” Carscallen said.

The construction management degree will prepare students to plan, direct and coordinate projects, from residential to commercial, and from roads and bridges to schools and hospitals.

Interior design students will learn to apply creative and technical solutions within a structure to create functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces.

The documentary film program will be suited to those interested in storytelling.
