Global Fashion Studies

Students enrolled in Global Fashion Studies study creative design and core business concepts, applying these topics to the world of fashion. Leadership skills are emphasized along with creativity, problem solving, writing, communication and presentation skills. 

Hands-on fashion career exploration is included in all phases of this course. Work-based learning opportunities will be available to students to work with local retailers at area shopping malls to learn visual display and merchandising.

After completing the program, students may start their careers or advance their education at two or four year colleges.

Who is eligible to attend?

Typically juniors and seniors from our 24 component school districts who are interested in career training as part of their high school experience are eligible to enroll.

How do I enroll?

The first step is to meet with your home school guidance counselor to learn how Career & Technical Education can benefit your career path. Your counselor can then help you arrange a tour of our Albany (Colonie) or Schoharie campuses, or the Center for Advanced Technology at Mohonasen. They can also help you begin the enrollment process.
