The FASH graduate program provides students with exciting learning, research, and networking opportunities that benefit students’ long-term career development in fashion, apparel, retail, and related industries. In the picture, FASH graduate students Ally Botwinick (4+1 program), Miriam Keegan, and Leah Marsh (4+1 program) visited Macy’s headquarters in New York City and presented their research findings on sustainable apparel sourcing to Macy’s leadership team.
Fashion and apparel is a $4 trillion dollar annual business worldwide. Across the supply chain, the U.S. fashion and apparel industry directly employs more than 4 million people, who undertake positions ranging from product developers, sourcing managers, merchandisers, buyers, and marketing professionals, just to name a few. As the U.S. fashion and apparel industry continues to focus on high-value parts—research & development, design and marketing, demand for professionals with a postgraduate degree in these fields is growing steadily. Graduates of our M.S. program are also highly sought for Ph.D. programs at major universities.
The University of Delaware is strategically located near world leaders in high performance textile manufacturing. Companies such as DuPont, Gore, and Invista. Furthermore, the department is able to take full advantage of various opportunities in the fashion industry in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and other major metropolitan areas due to its close proximity.
For many UD students, their bachelor's degree is just the beginning of their time as a Blue Hen. Whether it is the quality and value of our classes, our outstanding faculty and facilities, a desire to remain at a place where friends surround them and has become their home, or any other reason, they remain at or return to UD to pursue a graduate degree.
