With strong industry connections, excellent facilities and a world-class program of study, ASU's fashion program is one of the best in the nation.
The minor program in fashion offers grounding in the history, social context and economics of the contemporary fashion industry. Students also have the option of pursuing more focused classes designed to introduce them to a variety of roles in this important industry: fashion history, fashion industry business practices, and fashion production.
Among the subjects that may be related to students' majors are marketing and merchandising, costuming, wearable technology, sustainability, management and leadership, international experience, and fashion and culture. Due to the relationship of these subjects to a wide variety of disciplines taught at ASU, many students throughout the university may supplement their major with closely related fashion minor classes, creating a strong foundation for a variety of careers. Opportunities for study abroad could further advance students' professional goals.

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.
A minor can help students enhance the marketable skills they acquire in their major program and help them develop new skills apart from it, though most career areas do require more training than a minor alone can provide. A minor in fashion can help students as they pursue careers in fashion history, fashion industry business practices and fashion production.
