The fashion design and fashion merchandising program can prepare you for entry-level design, product development and merchandising positions at both manufacturing and retail levels.
This two-year program that includes day and evening courses. If you're interested in the design certificate, you'll take classes in apparel construction, pattern making, illustration, production, computer-generated design, textiles, industrial equipment and the study of historic costume. The fashion merchandising program prepares students for employment in buying, visual merchandising, product development, e-commerce and retail management.
The fashion design and fashion merchandising are among the largest industry-based programs in the Inland Empire.

Our program is unique because we require our students to complete a 60-hour internship which provides on-the-job training and opportunities for employment upon graduation.
