The Fashion Communication minor offers students the opportunity to develop practical communication skills for the fashion industry. This minor will complements skills Columbia students are developing in many majors (e.g., Fashion Studies, Business & Entrepreneurship, Cinema & Television Arts, Dance, Theater, Design, Photography, Cultural Studies, etc.). It includes two foundational communication courses and four courses focusing on either advertising, public relations, social media, fashion or events.
As a result of successfully completing the program requirements, students should be able to:
- understand the development, current state, and emerging trends of fashion communication and its audiences;
- create communication content for the fashion industry across a variety of media forms, appropriate to specific audiences, purposes, contents, and contexts; and
- accomplish goals with a critical awareness of fashion communication practices.
