The certificate program is designed to offer an abbreviated study in retailing and fashion merchandise to prepare for work in these industries or to build upon an existing degree to provide additional career opportunities. Students may complete the program in two semesters. Students should check with their advisor during the scheduling process to make sure courses are taken in proper sequence and any prerequisites have been met. Students will be able to apply the credits earned towards an AS degree in Retail Management and Fashion Merchandising.
