FAME Internships

A successful career in the fashion industry relies heavily on experience in the field along with knowledge learned through a bachelor’s degree. We try to provide our majors with an edge by incorporating field experience within the degree program. All fashion majors complete a work experience at the freshman/ sophomore level and an Internship at the junior/senior level. We also work to provide exclusive internship partnerships with small businesses that provide experience in buying, retail management, visual merchandising, fashion show production and magazine production. These practicum provide invaluable on-site learning and many of these experiences lead to future employment and accelerated career paths.
