Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management programs offer active learning opportunities including design studios, real-world projects, internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research.
Our talented faculty members specialize in a wide array of topics, and they're always mentoring students with independent research projects of their own. Classes are small and highly engaged, and our close-knit students hold regular social and service events.
Several courses incorporate a service-learning component that allows students to work with an organization. Projects have included bath design for a local show house, volunteering at a retirement community, helping small businesses with marketing plans, conducting the Reality Store financial management simulation for local high schools, and leading the VT Saves social marketing program.
