ABSTRACT
Accreditation for Family and Consumer Sciences and for Interior Design programs includes standards to globalize education of undergraduate students. An integrative approach to planning curriculum relates the concept of global interdependence to the development of critical thinking skills for student decision-making. This was addressed in modifying a university level construction course for interior design, connecting global methods to more sustainable building solutions. The revised instructional content is proposed as a course model that links student research and teamwork to content applications, demonstrating resource management and cultural diversity through sustainable projects.
