Online Classes About Fashion

By: Pam Johnson 

Learning about fashion is fun and exciting! It allows those who have a passion for fashion to show their emotions to the world through the clothing that they make. It is difficult, however, to make it in the fashion industry if you do not have the proper credentials. There are several in class options for fashion programs, but if you are more interested in online options for fashion classes, then this article is perfect for you! Take a look at these four online fashion degree options that are sure to fit perfectly into your schedule while bringing you closer to a degree in fashion.

Academy of Art University- San Francisco, California
As the name of the school implies, you'll really have an appreciation for the arts after studying some of these courses. When you are working toward a degree in fashion at this institution, you can opt for the Master of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts or Associate of Arts program. Therefore, you have the ability to reach as high of a level of study as you wish.

Parsons- New York City, New York
It's really incredible that you can learn online with Parsons The New School for Design as this is an extremely prestigious institution. If you absolutely love fashion and want to take your classes from the comfort of your computer, consider enrolling in the Fashion Marketing (AAS- Associates of Arts) Degree. According to the program's website, you will learn about buying, fashion publishing, product development, global sourcing and so much more, whether you decide to take these classes in the school itself or from the comfort of your very own home.

Berkeley College- Berkeley, California
Choosing an online program that has an array of possibilities is always a smart idea, especially if you are unsure how far into a program you would like to go. As with the Academy of Art University, you have a few different degrees from which you can choose at Berkeley. Opt for an AAS in Fashion Marketing and Management, a BBA (Bachelors of Business Administration) in Fashion Marketing and Management or a BS (Bachelors of Science) in Fashion Marketing and Management. Not only will you receive a top notch education while you are taking classes with this school, but the programs will also help you to connect with professionals in the field. Hopefully, these connections will help you find a job right after college!

Fashion Institute of Technology- New York City, New York
Here is another huge name in the field of fashion: the Fashion Institute of Technology. According to the program's website, "FIT offers 100 courses in an online environment." Another important note of this program is that both individuals who are going for a degree and those who are not are eligible to participate in these programs. Perhaps you do not know if a degree in fashion is what you want, but you would like to take an online course in it. With the flexibility of the FIT online programs, this wish can quickly turn into a reality.

When it comes to any sort of online school, you absolutely must find out about residency requirements. In some programs, you can complete most of the coursework online, but you will need to come to the actual school at some point. This is very true of hands-on majors where you need to create works and possibly collaborate with other students on a project.
