Our Fashion Design Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A) degrees prepare you for a career in fashion. You’ll develop your own technical skills, explore creative problem solving and grow an understanding of the challenges in the industry and how to overcome them.
Our graduates are highly sought after for entry-level design positions across the industry. You’ll also have a strong portfolio to use during interviews, helping to set you up for success when you graduate.
During your major degree, you’ll learn about three key stages of fashion design: conceptual, technical and production. Here are some of the key topics our instructors will cover:
- Color, design, and trend research
- Technical sketching and rendered illustration
- Pattern making and garment construction
- Fit and fabric selection
- Industry standards on production specifications for different markets
Before your senior year, you can decide whether to complete the B.A. or the B.F.A.
