The Fashion Institute of Technology is part of the SUNY system and focuses on different aspects of the fashion industry, ranging from design to mass communication. FIT offers non-credit courses, including from basic through advanced sewing classes, in addition to their degree programs. It is home to the Museum at FIT whose permanent collection includes thousands of garments and accessories from the 18th century to present day. The most popular majors are fashion & apparel merchandising, fashion & apparel design, and advertising.
FIT is the college for you if: You are ready to compete with thousands of other people just like you, You are (relatively) organized (even relatively is better than not at all. If you're the latter, this is not your best option), and You're not one to 'sit on your laurels' and wait for things to come to you. Sometimes, they really do! And that's great, but you can't count on it. Most people here juggle full-time jobs and social lives that directly connect to their 20 credit hours of classes each week.
The Fashion Institute of Technology isn't solely based on the studying of fashion. Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, from your peers, to the New York City skyline. Lastly the opportunities are endless.
