St. Catherine University
Ranked among top programs nationally, the Apparel, Merchandising and Design department at St. Catherine University (aka St. Kate’s) offers two degree options for students with a passion for fashion: apparel design and fashion merchandising. Access to award-winning faculty, the latest technology, internships and projects with industry and community partners, and a regionally recognized annual Katwalk show provide students with real-life experience necessary to succeed. The program’s commitment to global sustainability equips students with the know-how to manage the triple bottom line of business — financial, social and environmental performance. One exciting example of this commitment: St. Kate’s students designed the first GOTS–certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) fashion line to hit a U.S. runway.
