The undergraduate fashion core pathway curriculum consists of a scaffolded sequence of co-taught design and construction courses over the course of the sophomore, junior, and senior levels, providing a firm foundation in drawing, draping, pattern-making, and garment construction. In courses that combine historical research with contemporary explorations, students transcend the traditional boundaries of fashion to examine clothing as it relates to lifestyle, performance, display, costume, and art.

Body-builder as a pathway through the elective course offerings on their own gives students the opportunity to specialize into their self-selected area of interest such as illustration, accessories, knitwear, embellishment, performance oriented design, or foundation studies as part of the academic spine.
