Fashion Design and Merchandising offers two undergraduate degree concentrations: Design and Product Development Concentration and Merchandising Concentration. Students are required to complete professional internships in firms across the country and internationally to prepare students for high quality apparel-related positions. The junior and senior level focus on the student’s career interests. Design and Product Development students intern with couture designers or in industry settings (not retail). Merchandising student internships may include marketing, store management, buying, sourcing, sales, merchandising, media and special events, fashion journalism, or consumer relations experiences. Unique internships in theatrical costuming, or in museums with historical costume or textile collections are also possible. Detailed information regarding internships can be found below.
