Fashion Merchandising offers a two-year Associate’s degree program in Fashion Merchandising and Retailing for those interested in pursuing careers within the diversified fashion field. The programs of study are arranged so that the student, after earning an Associate in Arts degree, may go on to complete the Bachelor of Science degree requirements with the full utilization of all earned semester hours. Refer to the Fashion Merchandising and Retailing four year program in this Catalog.
In addition to formal class work, the student is required to participate in a supervised industry internship program with approved retail organizations that include many prestigious New York City stores. Other important aspects of the Associate’s Degree in Fashion Merchandising program are: fashion show productions; resident buying office workshops; field trips to the New York market, trade shows, museums, manufacturers, and textile plants at a nominal cost to student. On-campus seminars are led by outstanding industry personnel.
All students must fulfill a supervised industry internship between Thanksgiving and Christmas of their sophomore fall semester. The retail organization within which they will work is selected by the faculty of the Fashion Merchandising and Retailing Program. A student must have earned a .5 QPR to obtain junior status in the Program. The degree will not be granted to students who receive less than “C” in Retailing 280. The degree will not be granted to students receiving more than one “D” in any Fashion Merchandising and Retailing course.
Cooperative Education Program
Fashion Merchandising also offers a program combined with a full-time cooperative education program open to those interested in pursuing careers within the diversified retailing and fashion fields.
