Fashion-Schools.org’s annual rankings are out, and CTAHR’s Fashion Design and Merchandising (FDM) program continues to rise! It ranked in the top 20 percent of schools nationally in both fashion design (up from 25% last year) and in fashion merchandising (up from 30th last year). FDM ranked 40th in merchandising and 46th in design nationally (6th and 9th, respectively, for the West region.)

The website ranks hundreds of US fashion programs, based on reputation, selectivity and student outcomes, among other factors. It says of CTAHR’s FDM program, “Classroom work is enhanced by one of the largest costume collections at a university in the U.S., giving students and faculty a rich source of items to draw upon for their classes and projects.... Graduates of the program are prepared to compete for positions such as textile and fashion designer, technical designer, visual merchandiser, costume designer, curator and fashion forecaster.”

FDM is the place to be for students who have a passion for fashion!
