Fashion design at Ivies+elite Liberal Arts Colleges

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hullo styleforum,

I'm in high school and have started thinking about college. I might visit some schools when I'm out east this summer. Anyway, I'm interested in majoring in philosophy or theology at one of the Ivies or Amherst/Williams/Swarthmore/etc. Anyhow, I'm somewhat interested in doing a minor in some sort of fashion design, just for the fun of it.

Brown has a dual enrollment with RISD, which I'll look into. I know Columbia has joint-degree programs with NYC schools like Jewish Theological and Julliard, but do any such programs exist with FIT or Parsons? I was also wondering if there were any fashion courses at Yale Graduate School of Art that undergrads could audit. Any info on the programs I mentioned or even ones I didn't?

While I'd prefer to go to school on the east coast, I'm open to getting a solid liberal arts education elsewhere in the country as well.

Thanks much,
wmmk

I may be biased but shoot for RISD. You won't be sorry.

A friend who's designing now went the Brown-RISD route. Seems to me to be the best way to go in terms of formal schooling, though there is much to be said for being in NYC/Columbia.

FWIW, I had a friend who majored in Fashion design at Cornell while I was there. Don't know too much about the program other than that it exists though.
