School of Media & Design
The Fashion Management program is a unique blend of two disciplines, fashion design and fashion merchandising. All fashion management students take 40 hours of select core courses within fashion and business and 27-30 hours of required courses within the select concentration of either fashion design or merchandising.
Merchandising Concentration (FMER)
Merchandising students prepare for careers in the wholesale, retail or support segments of the fashion industry. This program provides students with a basic background in fashion design and construction, as well as the skills required for a successful career in fashion retailing through courses in textiles, merchandising, buying, entrepreneurship, promotion, and select business administration courses.
Design Concentration (FADS)
Design students learn to create and develop apparel. Students will be taught the application of design elements and principles, selection and use of fabrics and textiles, and the techniques for transforming design concepts into garments in order to create a final marketable product.
