Fashion Design A.A. (FSDA)

Attention This is an overview of the program. The course sequencing is meant to serve as a guideline for your semester planning. Please note that the scheduling of courses, program sequencing and curriculum are subject to change.

This program  is designed for those students  who have a special interest in entering the world of fashion. The program  prepares  students  with a foundation in fine arts and fashion concepts, as well as instruction  in the techniques  needed to create and manipulate  designs using digital tools. As in the Fine Arts program,  the Fashion Design curriculum  consists of a partnership between LCCC and The Baum School of Art, Allentown. While some students  may pursue the program  of study for personal enrichment  or employment  rather  than transfer, the degree is designed for students  preparing  to enter a program  leading to a baccalaureate  degree at a four­ year college or university. Because the requirements  of four-year  colleges or universities vary greatly, students should choose an intended  transfer college as soon as possible and work  with their advisor to coordinate course selection with the intended  transfer institution's program. All students  will be expected to prepare a portfolio  for transfer  or employment  applications.

Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be able to:

  • survey painting, sculpture, architecture and other related art forms with consideration of the aesthetic, historical, and technical significance of major artistic achievements.
  •  learn Fine Art principles and techniques utilized in all aspects of visual art production.
  • utilize computer graphics tools and techniques to create and manipulate visual designs.
  • use a variety of media to communicate visual ideas and concepts especially as they relate to the human form.
  • implement design and construction of garments  with an understanding of materials,  details, fit, and ability to be worn.

Transfer information for this program is on file in the Transfer Center. For more information, contact an academic advisor or counselor.
