General Information

Fashion Merchandising is an interdepartmental major leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. It is administered jointly by the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, and the Department of Information Technology and Administrative Management. The curriculum provides the necessary skills to work in the fashion merchandising field as a fashion buyer, a fashion retailer, or a fashion merchandise manager.

Courses are primarily selected from Administrative Management, Marketing Education, Information Technology, and Family and Consumer Sciences, providing information relating to the production, distribution, and consumption of clothing and textiles.
