With the completion of the first graduating class of the FTD Degree, we have discovered the need to make some changes in several courses in order to improve the performance and futures of our graduates.


This course has been re-developed in the following ways:



  1. Name changed from Fashion Design 3 to Fashion Collection Preparation;

  2. Added as a required course (only 1 additional hour to the program after a reduction of 2 hours in other courses);

  3. Textbooks changed;

  4. Prerequisites and co-requisite change;

  5. Revised course description;

  6. Revised learning outcomes; and

  7. Revised content and course evaluation.
