Curriculum

Design & Merchandising students develop an appreciation for style and product quality, learn to communicate verbally and visually about design, and gain the business knowledge and skills required to promote an aesthetically grounded point of view in the marketplace.

From their first to their last days as Design & Merchandising majors, students enhance their educational and professional development by participating in field trips and activities in Philadelphia, New York and across the world. Our program's very active guest speaker program is an integral part of student learning and offers students an opportunity to network with industry leaders early in their college careers.
