Master's Degree in Fashion Studies

General

Program Description

The Master's Program in Fashion (LM-65) prepares students for high-level responsibilities in the world of fashion, as well as its relations with figurative arts, communications, and entertainment, or for independent careers in the fashion industry and a wide range of related fields.

This image captures what working from home means to me. It’s so much more than sitting at a laptop; it’s a lifestyle. WFH means expressing yourself through your clothes, shoes, snacks and accessories throughout the day. Well, OK, as a working mum with two kids WFH doesn’t ALWAYS look like this. But a girl can dream!

Students acquire skills and specialist knowledge related to the development of the fashion industry, both historically and as an on-going trend, with special attention to cultural, symbolic, and economic/financial factors, as well as the entrepreneurial and management skills necessary to work in this field.

The Master's program uses interdisciplinary teachings involving scholars from several disciplines, including humanities, social sciences, marketing, and technical and management disciplines. Strong professional connections in the field of fashion provide students with insight into today’s world of fashion.

In particular, the program will provide students with:

  • Specific competences to identify, design, develop, manage, monitor, and assess projects, production, and economic/managerial aspects;
  • Tools to analyze the human, historical and cultural influences that play a role in the production, use, and commercialization of clothing, both in terms of historical/anthropological symbology and entrepreneurial market dynamics.
  • Communications skills, linguistic and technological media, knowledge acquisition and transmission systems;
  • Analytical skills for fashion industry history and clothing trends.
