M.S. requirements

Go to the heading “Program for Master’s of Science (MS) Degree in Apparel, Merchandising, and Design.” For the AMD Master’s of Science degree, a minimum of 30 credits is required.

The credits are divided into three groups:

Group 1: includes an introductory course to graduate study in apparel, merchandising, and design plus courses in research methods and statistics. Included in this group are the 6-7 credits for the required research projects, which the student reports in thesis form.

Group 2: includes the major course work in apparel, merchandising, and design.

Group 3: includes a minimum of 2 courses taken in related disciplines outside apparel, merchandising, and design.

Choice of courses depends on the student’s background, goals, and research topic. The program is planned by the student and the Program of Study (POS) Committee.

M.S. non-thesis requirements

Iowa State University (ISU) offers a distance (hybrid) Master’s in apparel, merchandising, and design for working professionals. In the hybrid distance program, award-winning ISU faculty prepares you to succeed as a professional in industry, museums, or academia.

This hybrid distance program features one or two short on-campus summer coursework sessions (that help meet the residency requirement). Other credits can be done at a distance.
