Which HBCUs are known for their fashion programs?

Hello! I'm all about fashion design and really want to study it in college. I’m particularly interested in attending an HBCU and was wondering if anyone could clue me in on which ones have reputable fashion programs. I'm looking for a program that's not only theoretical but also gives hands-on experience. Suggestions?

Hi there! It's fantastic that you're exploring your passion for fashion design and looking to merge that with the enriching experience an HBCU can offer. Howard University is one school that stands out with its Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. Students at Howard have the chance to participate in fashion shows and internships that offer both theoretical knowledge and practical experience.

Another HBCU you might consider is Savannah State University, which offers a Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Performing Arts with a concentration in Fashion Merchandising and Design. Don't forget about the annual HBCU Fashion Show that allows students to showcase their work. If you are willing to expand your focus beyond exclusively fashion design programs, some HBCUs also offer related programs in textiles and merchandising.

For hands-on experience, make sure you inquire about each program's internship opportunities, workshop classes, and partnerships with fashion companies or brands. Attending an HBCU can also provide a unique cultural perspective that would be beneficial in the fashion industry. Visit the campuses if you can, talk to faculty and current students, and check out the facilities where you'll be honing your craft. Best of luck on your fashion journey!
