Technical schools, community colleges, and traditional universities may offer Associate of Science degrees, which often take up to two years to complete with full-time study. These are available to students who have completed secondary school, but they are also often pursued by adults who have already joined the workforce but want more training to improve their options.

What is an Associate of Science in Fashion? Fashion goes beyond what people put on in the morning. These programs blend together elements of business and design, sometimes adding a splash of art depending on the student’s focus. Students may take courses such as fashion art studio, fashion research, fashion buying, and fashion merchandising. Advertising and marketing may provide more variety for some programs. Programs may require students to make a portfolio, create articles of clothing, or even create business reports.

An Associate of Science in Fashion strengthens students’ design skills, helping them create striking, practical, or statement pieces. Business acuity and sewing are additional skills that can bolster a graduate’s resume and provide more employment opportunities.

Researching and/or contacting individual schools is the best way to determine how much a program like this will cost. Location, format, and length of the program can cause a price to fluctuate between schools.

Not every graduate needs to become a fashionista, only dress them. Some job titles include fashion designer, retail manager, textile designer, retail buyer, and visual merchandiser. Graduates may choose to join fashion houses, retail stores, and even perfume manufacturers to meet the needs of growing trends, or to create the trends in the first place, as fashion consultant, brand specialist, styling and production assistant, and public relations representative.
