Students in the Design and Merchandising program develop an appreciation for style and product quality, learn to communicate verbally and visually about design across traditional and emerging media, and gain the business knowledge and skills required to promote an aesthetically grounded point of view in the global marketplace. The Design and Merchandising program at Drexel University's Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design educates and prepares students to effect change via creative problem-solving in design and commerce. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we strive to graduate adaptable, creative, confident and passionate professionals who are technologically adept and globally aware. Through the classroom, co-op experience and study abroad opportunities, the program prepares students to create, merchandise, market, promote and distribute fashion product, based on knowledge of visual/aesthetic and business considerations. Design and Merchandising students graduate with the knowledge and skills needed for success in traditional and emerging roles in the global marketplace, and as practical and responsible corporate citizens who will make the world a more compelling, beautiful place in which to live and work. Design and Merchandising majors typically focus study in the areas of fashion and fashion-related retail merchandising, product development and product promotions. Elective credits may be used for a concentration in Retail Buying and Merchandising; Fashion Product Development; Fashion Promotion and Special Events; Merchandising Technologies; and Design Management for Design and Merchandising. Elective credits may also provide students with an option to minor in business administration, another discipline, or to pursue their specific educational goals.
