At Baylor University, we believe that all education is transformational. We offer opportunities for students to explore the world for the purposes of increasing curiosity about our diverse but interconnected global society, developing new muscles of learning and independence, and experiencing firsthand the beauty of craftsmanship and artifacts of other cultures. Baylor Interior Design’s biennial summer study tour of western Europe offers students the chance to study historically significant architecture and interiors in situ and to learn from local experts. We also believe our vocational callings prompt us to use our skills in service to others, and so we enthusiastically participate in local community and international engagement opportunities.
"My time abroad granted me the opportunity to broaden my world view and understanding of other cultures and ways of life. I know that this experience will be one that I carry with me forever and will help me both as a student and future designer." —Jill Kraeger, 2022
Woven into the ethos of Baylor’s Interior Design program is a foundational belief that God prepares each of us for work that we are equipped to do and that those skills should be used to bless others. Global Missions are faculty-led experiences that are rooted in your coursework and draw on discipline-specific knowledge. We have been able to put that principle into action on multiple international mission trips to Africa and South America, providing needed design.
