Earning a Master of Arts in Fashion Design and Technology
The Master of Arts in Fashion Design and Technology provides students with a firm foundation in critical theories and trends, as well as the practical application and problem solving involved in fashion systems. Students are exposed to various approaches in the field, provided with a historical overview of the field and industry, and are introduced to the principles of a wide range of strategies for design and construction.
A graduate student in the School of Arts, Media, and Communications may take only one tutorial or independent study course and may enroll in a maximum of nine graduate credit hours per semester. A student may not receive graduate credit for any course designated as a dually-enrolled course if that student received credit for the undergraduate version of that course.
