Undergraduate Programs

At the Kent State School of Fashion, consistently ranked among the best fashion programs in the world, we offer two undergraduate degrees: one in Fashion Design and the other in Fashion Merchandising. Both of our programs set you up for a career in the industry. Fashion design helps you build the skills you need to create your own pieces, while fashion merchandising develops your knowledge in the business side of fashion.

Or, to help broaden your horizons as part of your undergraduate degree, you could study our Fashion Media minor. This course is available for Fashion Merchandising students and those who study at Kent State’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Fashion Merchandising - B.S.

Fashion Design - B.A.
