STEPHENVILLE (August 26, 2016) — Tarleton State University adds a new minor program in fashion studies to its 2016 fall semester lineup, providing opportunities for students to create their own design portfolio and expand career choices.
Open to all students regardless of their major degree plan, the 18-hour minor includes classes on fabric fundamentals and apparel development as well as an overview of the fashion industry and fashion history.
“Fashion studies fosters creativity and complements many major degree programs,” said Dr. Karol Blaylock, associate professor in Tarleton’s Department of Fine Arts. “A minor in fashion studies coupled with almost any major opens doors to career opportunities that many students never consider.
“Math and business majors can expand their career opportunities to include retail buying and merchandising management; communications students can become fashion journalists, and there’s always room in the industry for marketing and product development,” she explained.
