Costume Design

For students who have completed high school or college but feel that they do not have enough experience in the field of their choice, a course can be an advantageous path of study. Courses vary in length and focus, but generally offer intensive instruction in a given field, preparing students for careers or higher education in that discipline.

What is a course in Costume Design? This particular course is designed to ready students for rewarding and successful careers as costume designers. Different courses often have fairly specific areas of focus, but most at least touch on fashion studies, product design and stage makeup. Students learn how to create an entire character look – dress, hair, and makeup included. In addition to physically putting together the clothes, students are trained to conceptualize and brainstorm the costumes. In this way, the coursework helps to develop both creativity and technical skill.

Perhaps the main benefit of taking a course in Costume Design is the wide range of subject matter involved in the coursework. Students can hone their artistic style, learn about different fabrics and even study stage makeup. Whatever your interest is in the area of costume design, this course can help you explore it.

Every course in Costume Design will involve different costs. To hear more about enrollment fees and tuition, contact programs individually through the admissions office.

These courses lend themselves most directly to careers in costume design. Upon completion of the course, students are well equipped with the skills and experience needed to design costumes, whether for theater or cinema. Depending on a graduate's interests, he or she could go on to be the head costume designer for a given project, a position that requires more conceptual planning work and less hands-on costume creation. On the other hand, graduates of these courses have also become costume curators or hair and makeup artists.

The entertainment industry is always in need of passionate and bright costume designers, and a course in the field can be a great way to get started.
