Apparel Merchandise and Product Development B.S.H.E.S.

Nine-Semester Degree Program

Because the Apparel Merchandise and Product Development program requires a summer tour and an internship, it doesn't qualify for the Eight-Semester Degree Program. Go to the Eight-Semester Degree Policy for university requirements of the program. The program plan below, though, gives a path for completing required courses in a four-year period.
