Oklahoma State University’s bachelor's degree options in fashion design and production and fashion merchandising have been accredited by the Textile and Apparel Programs Accreditation Commission (TAPAC).
Following a thorough review of programs, resources and student outcomes, OSU is just the third university to achieve TAPAC accreditation, which strives to ensure outstanding education that advances excellence in the textile and apparel profession.
“This accreditation assures our students receive the highest quality educational experiences and that they are prepared for the apparel industry once they graduate. We work hard to keep our students at the cutting-edge of industry demands, and are proud to become one of the first programs accredited by TAPAC,” said Lynn Boorady, head of the Department of Design, Housing and Merchandising.
In addition to bachelor’s degree options in fashion design and production and fashion merchandising, the OSU Department of Design, Housing and Merchandising offers on-campus master’s degree options in apparel design and production and merchandising and an online master’s in retail merchandising leadership.
The department is also home to undergraduate and graduate degree options in interior design.
