Career Preparation

Student sketches fashion figure

Job placement for graduates is high because all fashion merchandising majors complete internships before graduation.

In many cases, our graduates receive job offers from their internship organizations, while others use the internship experience as a networking tool to seek out other job opportunities.

Graduate degrees are not required for most professional positions within the fashion industry. However, graduates who aspire to work in law, as college professors, in textile science and quality assurance will seek graduate degrees.

Conde Nast International



JC Penney

Justin Boots
