Fashion retailing concentration for AT majors. The fashion retailing concentration is planned for students interested in preparing for merchandising and management careers in retailing and related fashion fields. Supervised internships are offered during the senior year for students who have successfully completed 86 semester hours. The 86 hours must include the following group of professional courses, completed with a grade point average of 2.5 or higher, prior to enrollment in CTD 481 and CTD 485: CTD 102; CTD 241; CTD 261; CTD 281; CTD 320; CTD 447; MKT 300; MKT 321; MKT 313, MKT 337, MKT 444, or MKT 410; EC 110; EC 111 or ST 260; and accounting. The first half of the internship consists of class meetings on campus; during the second half of the internship, the student participates in an approved work experience. A student interested in an international retailing focus should consult with his or her adviser early in the sequence to plan coursework and internship experience. Through careful planning with the adviser, a marketing minor may be completed without additional courses.

Career opportunities include employment with interior design studios, interior design divisions of architectural firms, and retail establishments. The coursework is designed to prepare students to apply to become registered interior designers. The interior design program received six-year reaccreditation from the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER) in 2000. Accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) was awarded in 1998.

The courses CTD 225, CTD 226, CTD 325, CTD 326, CTD 425, and CTD 426 must be taken in that sequence. Laboratory courses at the 300 and 400 levels are open only to interior design majors. Each student will be assigned an academic adviser who will help develop the plan of study.
