Yes. If you pursue a Marketing degree you can easily add minors to boost your credibility as an interior designer or event planner. Majoring in marketing makes you a more competitive candidate for jobs.


Some schools also also offer a degree called Interior Architecture. The general concept is to design a building in a effective but creative way. Also you could just design one room of a home.

Madeline recommends the following next steps:

  • Schedule a meeting with your advisor
  • Bring a list of questions
  • Bring up anything that might hold you back from a certain major
