At TCU, you’ll grow intellectually and personally, and you’ll also gain professional knowledge and skills for a successful career. Internships are invaluable for helping determine which career path most interests you.

Fashion merchandising students are required to complete an internship. The students get to choose where they intern and the department will monitor their experiences.

A high number of our students are hired at the companies where they interned.

All fashion merchandising students are required to complete FAME 40283 Fashion Internship. This course is for credit and is supervised by a faculty member. Students complete class assignments related to their internship work experience during the summer semester and tuition is charged. Students will either take this course the summer following their junior year if they are a December or May graduate or the summer following their senior year if they are an August graduate. NOTE: Credit will not be awarded for any internship or work experience other than FAME 40283.
