If you have a keen interest in fashion and design in a global context, this course will develop your understanding of the changing significance of what we wear, from designer items to everyday objects. Taught by experts in fashion and design history, you will learn about the making and use of clothing and design in the past and present. Engaging with a range of images, objects and texts, you will explore how fashion and design relate to social, political and cultural identities and meanings. You will be encouraged to work individually and in groups, and will graduate equipped with a wide range of written, oral and exhibition-based presentation skills. You will develop as a critical thinker, researcher and communicator ready for work in fashion, the museum sector or any number of industries. You will have access to resources including our Teaching Collection, as well as our world-renowned Design Archives and Screen Archive South East, all based at the university. You will work with important local collections at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and Worthing Museum, and there will be opportunities for field trips beyond Brighton.
