FIT thrives in having an academic curriculum that reflects what is happening every day in corporate offices, showrooms, and studios all over the world. What is unique about the academics at FIT is that from day one, you are learning about your chosen field. The courses offer "real life" assignments, and the projects are not out of a textbook. What you do in the classroom will be what you do in the future. Students have the option of entering the Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology or the School of Art and Design. With more than 30 undergraduate majors, ranging from all different areas within the fashion industry and beyond, you're sure to find a major that best suits you and your interests.
The faculty at FIT delivers information straight from the industry, as all instructors are nationally and internationally recognized for their contribution to the industry. The professors are dedicated to enriching the education experience of the students. Although the professors are heavily knowledged individuals, their working lives give them little to no time to engage with students outside of the classroom.
