Fashion, Culture, History, and Social Justice

The Fashion, Culture, History, and Social Justice minor gives you an opportunity to better understand diverse consumers and help provide them with the products they desire. Future leaders entering the fashion, museum or other related industries will develop an increased awareness of appearances and fashions of people historically experiencing oppression and marginalization. Having a background in social justice as you enter the workforce helps you better understand people who are different from you. Additionally, understanding more about others can aid in societal improvements towards developing a more socially just environment. Examples of a few job titles that this minor would benefit include museum curator, collections manager, research associate, chief diversity officer, human resource roles, designers, merchandisers, product developers, and/or marketing managers.
