Fashion Merchandising

The Fashion Merchandising Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level management positions in the broad field of fashion merchandising, with emphasis on the retail process of products and services. It includes a minor in business administration, as well as an internship in Fashion Merchandising or a related area.

In addition, the department participates in the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Visiting Student Program (located in New York City). Fashion Merchandising majors who meet eligibility requirements may opt to spend one year (junior year) at FIT for an additional degree (A.A.S.) in advertising and marketing communications. Students return to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) to complete the four-year program and receive both degrees at graduation. To compliment their program, students may choose to complete electives that focus on advertising, journalism, communication, or visual presentation. With appropriate courses taken as electives, students can pursue careers in fashion reporting, advertising, or graphic design.
