Our bachelor's degree in Design, Merchandising and Textiles (DMT) offers students the education they need to enter a diverse and competitive field in which individuals plan, provide, and promote apparel, interiors, and related goods desired by the consumer. Students who enjoy working with fabrics, clothing, or home furnishings and are interested in color, design, and business should choose design, merchandising and textiles as a course of study.
The DMT degree is an interdisciplinary curriculum providing a flexible, broad program to accommodate a variety of careers and interests. Special emphasis is placed on preparation for management or ownership of small retail businesses in Wyoming and rural areas of the West. Students have access to modern laboratories for textile testing, fashion and interior design, and apparel construction.
Students in the Design, Merchandising and Textiles degree choose one of three concentrations:
Throughout coursework, concepts of sustainable design and manufacturing, as well as the influence of design on well-being will be highlighted. Students will take a series of DMT program core classes to gain experience with all three tracks. All DMT students are required to participate in a three-credit internship, international field study tour, or a study abroad program.
Students will be prepared for careers ranging from small business in Wyoming and rural areas of the West, to the highly competitive, fast-paced global marketplace.
