Study Costume Design
Costume and fashion choices have the ability to transport a production to certain time period, location or specific setting. Studying for a degree in costume design will allow you to explore the theoretical and practical elements of the discipline. You will come to understand the history of costume and costume design, as well as learning how to apply modern technologies, such as 2D and 3D design software, to the design and construction process.
An undergraduate degree in costume design will give you a foundation of knowledge in the area. You will study modules on the history of costume design, pattern cutting, menswear and women's wear, performance design and costume construction. These modules will develop your skills, preparing you for a variety of career options.
Your degree will be delivered through a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. The costume department at your institution may work alongside other courses such as drama and theatre performance in order to provide opportunities to apply your practical skills to the creation of real costumes. You may also be given the chance to take part in a work placement module or year, allowing you to gain valuable work experience.
