Off Campus Study

off_campus_study_picThe fashion industry is truly global in scope, and the TMD department is leading the way in providing students with a wide range of opportunities for off-campus study that will better prepare them for the world that awaits them when they graduate. Many TMD students take advantage of one or more of these opportunities.

Double major in TMD and a “fashion” language, either French or Italian. Follow the two curricula, and with careful planning you can complete both degrees in four years. A semester abroad is recommended, and can involve coursework or internships in those countries. Visit the French and Italian websites to learn more about those programs.

Study Abroad
Many TMD students do this for a semester. Popular choices are London (e.g AIU or Central St Martins), Florence (Richmond, Accademia Italiana, Lorenzo di Medici). Paris, Barcelona and Australia are also popular. Many other study abroad experiences exist and can be found through URI’s Office of International Education.

Summer Study at the Universite de la Mode in Lyon, France. Each day the students listen to lectures, visit museums, or go on field trips. Lyon is home to a still vibrant silk industry, a major textile museum, shoe and hat museums, and art museums.

The winter fashion study tour of London and Paris takes place each year in early January and is led by a member of the faculty. We spend five days in each city, with visits to designers, museums, upscale stores and boutiques.

For the New York experience, TMD students can take courses at the Kent State University studio campus in New York in the summer, fall or spring.

The National Student Exchange offers students a chance to study at another institution in the United States.
