BS Fashion Merchandising Management

"It’s great that I can still work toward my degree, even while being on the other side of the globe!"

For as long as I can remember, I have always been intrigued by the fashion world. It has always been a dream of mine to work beside some of the top designers in the world and maybe even to become one myself one day.

While teaching myself the basics of sewing and tailoring, I decided I wanted to learn the business side of fashion as well. Not even a year ago, I was attending a a local university pursuing my fashion merchandising degree, when I found out my husband, a United States Airman, would be stationed in Italy for a few years.

I began to panic. How was I going to finish school or afford it in a different country? Since my major isn’t considered common or “transferrable,” finding a school that would allow me to obtain my bachelor’s in fashion merchandising online became a stressful battle.

Finally, I came across SNHU. Not only did SNHU offer my major, but it was affordable! SNHU was so great about making sure as many of my credits as possible transferred over. This was a huge relief. Since joining the online program, I feel more confident in reaching my goals. It’s great that I can still work toward my degree even while being on the other side of the globe!
