The Fashion Marketing program was recently recognized as one of the best online associate's degree programs by Affordable College Online. The program provides the training and education in marketing, merchandising, and retailing students need to enter and excel in the fashion industry. The
Fashion Marketing curriculum is the same online and on campus.
A Global Online Learning Environment
Parsons' online program reflects today's global fashion market, connecting faculty and students all over the world—from New York and California to Seoul, Sydney, and beyond. Classes are asynchronous, so you can fit them into your unique schedule.
As an online student, you'll have the opportunity to undertake self-developed internships with guidance from the AAS program and Career Services. Because Parsons is part of The New School, you will have access to a variety of university resources including event podcasts, and videos.
New School Libraries & Archives
The mission of the University Libraries & Archives is to provide access to collections of materials sufficient in quality, depth, diversity, format and currency to support the research and teaching missions of The New School. Currently-enrolled students, faculty, and staff may access our collections, including the online databases (available on-campus or off-campus), using MyNewSchool logins.
Diverse Student Body
Parsons' AAS Fashion Marketing students come from a broad range of academic and professional backgrounds. Many hold undergraduate degrees, and some have earned advanced degrees. These diverse students have one thing in common: They are serious about the business side of fashion.
"I loved the dedication of the teachers and my classmates. The program taught me so much about technology that I am pursuing a fashion career in e-commerce. Students bond and form friendships online with peers, and the program is great for networking."
— Rachel Demain
"Online, everyone participates. The flexibility of the program worked well, as I live in Chicago, Illinois. I plan to stay in Chicago after my internship, doing marketing and public relations for a local handbag designer."
— Kristina Jones
