About

The Interior Lighting Design Certificate from Parsons is focused on creating a foundation for designing successful lighting by helping participants understand light and human vision, lighting technologies and performance, lighting design as a discipline, and the impact of light on an environment.

We need light to see well enough to perform functions and activities and to render the architecture of the environment.
