Fashion

A Masters of Science marks the completion of the first level of post-graduate study in fields related to science, engineering, and medicine. Since these are some of the most competitive and fastest-growing job markets in the world today, an increasing number of students are choosing to pursue a master’s degree to make themselves more professionally sought after. Likewise, adults who are already in the job market are choosing to get master’s degrees in order to further their careers and move ahead in their chosen fields.

Those wondering, “What is an MSc in Fashion?” should first know that it does allow them to make great strides forward in the exciting world of fashion design. The field of fashion is roughly divided into two major categories: textiles and clothing design. There are master’s degrees available that offer a focus in both of these categories. An MSc in Fashion teaches the basics of making and marketing beautiful clothes, as well as the very important business side of the fashion industry.

Fashion is a highly competitive industry, and one of the benefits of earning a master’s is that it lets hiring managers know that the degree holder is knowledgeable and serious about the field. During the course of studying for a master’s, students also have access to high-quality materials and equipment so they can get the feel for a wide variety of techniques.

The cost of a Masters in Fashion depends on what institute you choose to attend. In addition to tuition costs, the cost of materials is often fairly high, and is generally not covered by the school.

Those with a Masters in Fashion can expect to find a job working either with corporate clothing companies or with their own line. Jobs in the field of fashion consulting, such as personal styling, are also available.

 

There are a number of advantages to getting your Masters in Fashion online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
