Fashion Design (Minor)

About the Program

The 21-credit minor consists of seven courses that focus on the creativity, technology, and techniques required to design and construct apparel. This program introduces students to the processes and technology associated with designing and creating apparel, as well as the creative and technical considerations in the fashion industry. Students have the opportunity to design and create their own apparel using different equipment and software programs.

The fashion design minor creates opportunities for interdisciplinary specialization. For instance, a communication major could combine fields for a career in fashion public relations, or a theater major could delve into costume design.

The minor is available to any student who is not currently majoring in the fashion and textile technology program.
