As an Apparel and Merchandising major, you’ll harness your creativity and critical thinking to learn about apparel and textile design and development, as well as sourcing, production, and retailing of consumer goods. You’ll study cultural, historical, economic, and scientific aspects of the textile and apparel industry, while fostering an understanding of consumer behavior and socially responsible business practices. There are three concentrations in the major: Apparel Design and Production, Merchandising, and Product Development.
The Apparel Design and Production concentration focuses on the development of knowledge and skills necessary to engage in the design of textile and apparel goods. Students who choose this concentration will complete coursework in aesthetics and design, illustration, pattern development, apparel construction techniques, and computer-aided design.
