This comprehensive program prepares students to succeed in any aspect of the fashion industry, from buying to presenting, to even developing a clothing line. That’s because, in addition to a strong curriculum designed to provide an in-depth overview of the fashion industry from construction to marketing, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to gain real-world, hands-on experience. Through mandatory and voluntary opportunities, such as internships, creation of professional portfolios, access to the Mercyhurst Fashion Club, experiencing fashion from “Fashion Capitals” around the world, or networking with fashion professionals, we emphasize the need for our students to have actual experience in the field prior to graduation.
As a Mercyhurst student, you’ll also have the opportunity to live and learn in New York City through our Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Visiting Student Program. By studying at this highly-regarded institution during your junior or senior year, you’ll graduate with both a bachelor’s degree from Mercyhurst and an associate degree from FIT.
