Apparel Design (120 Hours)

Apparel design focuses on the interaction between design and merchandising and offers depth in apparel design. Students typically complete a minor in Fine Art and/or Business Administration.

Students wishing to certify in apparel merchandising, and textiles must have a minimum 2.50 cumulative GPA. Students must receive a C or better grade in all AMDT courses and MKTG 360. A course may only be repeated once. Courses required in these programs cannot be taken on a pass, fail basis. To maintain certification, a 2.50 cumulative GPA is required each semester. Independent study and internship courses (AMDT 490, 495, 498) will not be included in GPA calculations. Students dropping below a 2.50 GPA will be de-certified and can reapply when their GPA is 2.50 or above. Students interested in the apparel design option are accepted through a portfolio review process. Applications are available in the main office and need to be submitted during the spring semester of the second year. Transfer student who have completed two years of college may submit an application during the summer prior to the first semester of attendance at WSU for consideration.
