HBCU suggestions for a student interested in fashion majors?

I’m on the lookout for an HBCU with a strong program in fashion. I want a school that not only teaches the theory, but also gives students practical experience in the industry. Does anyone have recommendations? Maybe you’ve attended or know someone who has, and I'd love to get that firsthand perspective!

Howard University might be an excellent choice to consider. Not only is it one of the most prestigious HBCUs, but it also offers a dynamic Fashion Design program. Howard’s Department of Art fosters creativity, critical thinking, and practical skills, setting you up well for a career in the fashion industry.

Students often report enjoying the way the curriculum balances theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience. Many students also find valuable internship opportunities through the University’s connections, which is something you'd likely benefit from as well.

Another option is Clark Atlanta University, which also has a reputation for providing a strong fashion curriculum and industry connections. Research the faculties and alumni networks of these programs to get a sense of where graduates end up, which can be a strong indicator of the program's practical impact. Definitely put these on your list to look into and don't hesitate to reach out to their admissions departments for more detailed information about their fashion programs!
