Lighting Design

Courses in lighting design are a good choice for individuals who have strong math skills and an interest in science, engineering and architecture. These courses might provide a stepping stone to an internship in the lighting design industry, or they could serve as an exploratory step in obtaining a degree in lighting design.

What is a course in lighting design? There are many classes available in this category, ranging from short one-semester classes to longer, more intensive programs, such as a 1-year course. Most courses will incorporate elements from architecture, building design and interior design. Depending upon personal interest, the student might choose a class in theatrical lighting design, interior lighting design, building design, 3D modeling or architectural lighting design.

Students enrolling in one of these courses will likely learn valuable skills such as how to use lighting for impact (theatrical lighting) or how to use artificial and natural light for permanent illumination, such as in building architecture. Students opting for a class in interior design lighting, for instance, may be taught principles of directional lighting and study theories of color management and space management through the use of lighting.

Costs associated with taking a course in lighting design can vary widely depending upon the school, the country and the length of the program. Potential students should research their options and contact the school that best meets their needs.

After completing a lighting design course, a student might obtain work as an intern in the theatrical lighting field, such as in concert or scene lighting for dance, opera, television or film. Students wishing to work in the area of architectural design might find an internship in the field of building design. However, to work as a lighting designer, a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in lighting design is usually required.

Due to the hands on nature of lighting design, online options are not currently available. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
