Apparel Design Minor

A minor in apparel design is administered jointly by the Apparel, Textiles and  Merchandising Program and theatre arts department. It is designed to enable students with career interests in this field to gain experience in the competency areas expected of apparel designers. This minor allows the student to learn to apply the basic principles of design and creativity in developing apparel. Students will study the application of artistic and creative design elements, selection, and use of fabrics and textiles, and the techniques for transforming design concepts into garments in order to create a final sale-able product for a target market.

To be admitted to a minor in Apparel Design, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.3 (or be a freshman or transfer). A minimum grade of C- must be earned in each course counted toward fulfilling major and minor requirements.
