When I first started college I studied political science - but it wasn't my true passion. So I followed my creative drive, moved to New York, enrolled in FIT, changed the course of my future, and found my new - and true - passion”

FIT Online Degree Program Update!
FIT has just announced the availability of an Online Associates Degree in Fashion Merchandising Management. The two-year associate degree in Fashion Merchandising Management (FMM) curriculum consists of 68.5 credits in course areas such as Contemporary Retail Management, Merchandising Math Applications, Fashion Merchandising, and Product Development, which prepare graduates for a variety of careers, including retail and wholesale buying, product development, sales, management, and marketing. This highly selective program offers the same curriculum as on-campus students are required to take. Online students also will have their own advisor available online, and will be able to connect and network with each other via online groups.
For more information about the program, visit the Fashion Merchandising Management section of the FIT website. To apply to the program, visit FIT’s Admissions Office webpage.
FIT offers over 100 courses in an online environment. Activities in online courses are the same as in a traditional class -- students read course materials, write papers, do research, take exams, and communicate with their instructor and fellow students. The students and the faculty use technology as a tool in accomplishing these tasks. Learning is both interactive and collaborative. Students leverage the wealth of resources available through the Internet to support their learning.
If you opt to take an online course, you will access your course through FIT’s ANGEL Learning website. You will complete each week’s coursework on a more flexible schedule and submit your work in ANGEL. Online courses are not for everyone, and work best for independent learners who communicate comfortably through reading and writing. You will be expected to participate in online discussions with your class several times per week. Online courses are open to both degree and non-degree students, as well as international students.
