The New England School of Art & Design is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design
(NASAD), the national accreditation agency for art and design. Our Interior Design BFA and Interior Architecture MA programs are accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation
(CIDA), a specialized body recognized by the US Department of Education. Not every school that offers courses or programs in art and design is accredited and that’s important to consider when choosing where you’ll study. We are very proud to have earned these specialized accreditations, as doing so speaks to both the rigor and the caliber of the curricula and to the success of our alumni in their respective fields. Our programs go through a regular review and evaluation process performed by teams of art and design professionals and academicians from across the nation, who carefully examine the quality of the work being produced by our undergraduate and graduate students. During our most recent review periods we were pleased to receive the maximum length of re-accreditation by both NASAD and CIDA, which speaks volumes about the confidence both bodies have in our programs.
