UD Courses


​Students from UD and the Instituto Politecnico CentroAmericano present their 

Ethical Fashion projects to Gildan Activewear.​​

The Department of Fashion and Apparel Studies has integrated sustainability topics into its undergraduate programs in apparel design and fashion merchandising. Our ********* map outlines the various courses where sustainability content is assessed but many other courses include content as well.

The Department also offers an innovative and award-winning graduate certificate in Social Responsibility and Sustainability that is taught entirely through the web. For more information click here​​.

Training for Industry

The Department also extends its educational expertise to the apparel industry by creating and delivering customized training programs on sustainability topics for companies. Additionally, our Brief Courses in Social Responsibility and Sustainability offer focused content on critical topics. For example, over 2,000 supply chain professionals from 29 countries have successfully completed the University of Delaware's Risks of Human Trafficking and Slavery short course.​ Over 70 companies have used the course to train their employees or teams, in industries including apparel, footwear, pharmaceutical, biotech, manufacturing, food processing, jewelry, retail, packaging, electronics and telecommunications. UD is the only on-demand online training provider on this topic.

For additional information or to discuss your company's training needs, please contact  or e-mail Dr. Marsha Dickson for at .
