Masters of Arts in Global Communications, Fashion Track

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The fashion industry has become an important actor in world social and economic development. Yet too often fashion communications have been analyzed exclusively from the point of view of the Western fashion system—or simply been dismissed as superficial or irrelevant.

The optional fashion track within the Master of Arts in Global Communications (MAGC) addresses this misperception. It offers courses taught by theorists of fashion and professionals in the field. Students get the chance to explore the many facets of fashion communications.

From traditional to cutting-edge

The specialized fashion track of MAGC provides an in-depth background applicable to careers in traditional fashion communications, as well as in several expanding and cutting-edge aspects of the industry including:

  • the marketing of global luxury brands;
  • the rise of ethical fashion, such as cause-related marketing, Labor Behind the Label, and sustainable consumption;
  • NGO fashion and textile production for sustainable development;
  • cultural implications of globalized fashion;
  • the digital revolution in fashion journalism and marketing including blogs and websites;
  • fashion centers and cities worldwide.

Students take introductory background courses which provide theories and models to prepare them for study of specific fashion issues in modules. These modules are taught by visiting professionals and researchers, top in their fields.

This specialized knowledge will be supplemented by and integrated with courses for the Master of Arts in Global Communications.
